Mario Night!

To coincide with Teen Tech Week, on Friday March 15, 17 teens showed up to celebrate Nintendo's famous mascot, Mario. The main event was a Mario Kart Wii tournament, which lasted up until the very end of the evening. It was a pretty close game, and in the end David took home a $15 Gamestop gift card and John took home a $10. The first and second place winners also took home a random Mario Kart capsule toy, and all participants got Mario themed candy. In addition to Mario Kart Wii on the main projector, we had a Gamecube hooked up to a second projector and an N64 hooked up to the TV. There were also some activities for those not currently playing a game, such as a Mario-themed word search, a Mario maze and some coloring pages. It was a really fun night and I look forward to doing another soon!

And here's some Mario coloring pages!


couple of new titles

Here's a few new titles that have come in recently, be sure to check them out! If you're a fan of The Legend of Zelda, you'll definitely want to check out Hyrule Historia!

  • Don't Turn Around by Michelle Gagnon
  • Homeland by Cory Doctorow (sequel to Little Brother)
  • Nerve by Jeanne Ryan
  • When We Wake by Karen Healey
  • Requiem by Lauren Oliver (final book of the Delirium trilogy)
  • The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia 
I'm guessing Don't Turn Around has nothing to do with Ace of Base, but I can't help but hear that song anyway when I read the title.
