Book Spotlight Giveaway! The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict by Trenton Lee Stewart

I have sooooo many books! I have a ton of print books and probably even more e-books. The Book Spotlight Giveaway feature that I post every Saturday is a way for me to clear my shelves and to share some of the many books I have. There are a lot of different reasons that I might be letting some of my books go, the biggest one is that when we moved a little over 2 years ago I discovered how many books I really do have. This feature is a way for my to cull my collection and to give someone else the opportunity to enjoy them.


This is another ARC that I received from my daughter when she moved. I had never heard of this series, even though there are four books out. It's not really something I would read but it does look interesting. I am sure one of you will enjoy it! 

Good luck and be sure to stop back next week!


The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict

The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict (The Mysterious Benedict Society 0.5) by Trenton Lee Stewart 
ARC, 470 pages
Published April 10th 2012 by Little, Brown and Company

Before there was a Mysterious Benedict Society, there was simply a boy named Nicholas Benedict. Meet the boy who started it all....

Nine-year-old Nicholas Benedict has more problems than most children his age. Not only is he an orphan with an unfortunate nose, but he also has narcolepsy, a condition that gives him terrible nightmares and makes him fall asleep at the worst possible moments. Now he's being sent to a new orphanage, where he will encounter vicious bullies, selfish adults, strange circumstances -- and a mystery that could change his life forever. Luckily, he has one important thing in his favor: He's a genius.

On his quest to solve the mystery, Nicholas finds enemies around every corner, but also friends in unexpected places -- and discovers along the way that the greatest puzzle of all is himself.

  1. I'd love to read a new series and to meet a new cast of characters!

  2. This looks very interesting and a little different from what I usually read, but I would like to read it!!

  3. I haven't read it either. I want to because it sounds really unique.

  4. I haven't read it, but many of my students have suggested it to me. I think they'd like to see this title on the classroom bookshelf.

  5. No I haven't but would love to read it with my oldest grand son.

  6. Actually, I've been meaning to read the original MYSTERIOUS BENEDICT SOCIETY and this being a prequel of sorts, I'm in! 😄

  7. I have not read any of this series. It would be interesting to see how a genius handles those challenges.
