This week's Virtual Cozy Book Chat talked about books we wish were movies and books that made great (or not so great) movie adaptations. We had a terrific discussion! Coincidentally this week's winning review by library patron Deborah, (congrats Deborah!) was the streaming movie series "Little Fires Everywhere" which is based on the novel by Celeste Ng. Deborah gave the show a solid 5 stars and she also mentioned that she loved the book as well. It's always terrific when our favorite books adapt to film enjoyably!
Speaking of movies, did you try our new library streaming service Hoopla Digital? If not, you're going to want to check it out. Hoopla Digital is for Oceanside cardholders (over 18) that offers streaming and downloadable movies, audio books, TV shows, eBooks, music, comics and graphic novels.

November is National Novel Writing Month... NaNoWriMo!
The NaNoWriMo organization is a nonprofit that provides tools, structure, community, and encouragement to help people find their voices, achieve creative goals, and build new worlds — on and off the page.
Writing a novel alone can be difficult, even for seasoned writers. NaNoWriMo helps you track your progress, set milestones, connect with other writers in a vast community, and participate in events that are designed to make sure you finish your novel. Oh, and best of all, it’s free!
NATIONAL NOVEL WRITING MONTH HAS A PLACE @ OCEANSIDE LIBRARY! On Thursdays, November 7, 14, 21, from 7:00p.m.- 8:00 p.m. write among others, talk about new projects and feel inspired! We will have a station to register for NaNoWriMo on their website. For more information on this initiative visit www.nanowrimo.org or click the button below.
