Breakfast over Books Counting by 7s book club meeting date is scheduled for Wednesday, November 6th. The book is a bit longer than the typical books chosen for Breakfast over Books, so students have needed additional reading time. If your student has checked it

out, please be sure they read every night and turn it in quickly for other students. November’s book is Tales from the Crypt: Diary of a Dead Kid. The meeting date is November 28 at 7:25.
