Book Review: Vordak the Incomprehensible: How to Grow Up and Rule the World

by Scott Seegert

For all those budding megalomaniacs out there, Vordak the Incomprehensible writes the go-to guide for world domination.  Just make sure to follow all his rules, credit him for your successes, and for goodness sake, do NOT write in his book!  Also, make sure to work on your evil laugh (muhahaha!), get a great costume, and watch out for those superheroes who are constantly trying to take you down!

Although this would infuriate Vordak (and I really don’t want him coming after me), but this was one of the funniest books I have read in a while.  Do not miss this one!

The Millionaire Readers Club is Looking for New Members!

Looking for a new challenge?  Then look no further than Eastwood Middle School’s Millionaire Readers Club!

So, how do you become a member of this elite society? All you need to do is read and take your Accelerated Reader quizzes!  Every student that reads 1,000,000 or more words, as measured by Accelerated Reader, is automatically a member.

What are the benefits of membership? Well, you first get a Millionaire Reader’s Club membership card to carry in your wallet (you’ll need this for admission to the Nintendo Wii party in the spring); you’ll receive a library late fee coupon worth $.50 toward your late fees (you will receive an additional coupon for every 500,000 additional words you read after the first 1,000,000); and you also earn admission to our Spring Nintendo Wii party next semester!  Don’t miss out on the reading, fun and games!  Keep an eye out as the benefits expand.

Still confused?  Have questions?  Need to see how many words you’ve read? See Mrs. Overstreet in the library!
