I've got so much to share from this past week, I thought I'd put it in chronological order...
Tuesday, January 5, 1:41 p.m.
Edge of the Seventeen posted another entry into her "Shelf Grazing" portfolio and delighted me by bringing to my attention the intriguing (and unique) hook/plot summary of Nothing Like You by Lauren Strasnick. Thank you, Mandy, my TBR shelf is a little bit more full. [Also, for fun, check out Lauren Strasnick's website, per Mandy's suggestion, because it's pretty awesome. Kind of inspiring, as far as author-blogs can inspire aspiring author types (like me).]
Tuesday, January 5, 8:54 p.m.
Books on the Nightstand (newly minted over at Word Press) posted their 59th podcast. I haven't listened yet; however, I did click through to read the list of the twenty worst offenses in the average book reviewer's vocabulary. After reading the article I thought I was safe, but then I scrolled down and saw that she added another word: "unputdownable." I do use that word (which I don't think is technically even a word) from time to time. I'll have to keep an eye on that.
Wednesday, January 6, 1:30 a.m.
100 Scope Notes posted his "Morning Notes" and highlighted that Katherine Paterson (noted author of Bridge to Teribethia and other kid-lit greats) has been named the new International Ambassador for Young People's Literature. Congrats to her... check out the write-up in the NY Times. [Also, for fun, check out the "Book Buzz" in that Morning Notes feature... I love reading the one-sentence book/series summaries they write. Twilight = Vampires and Werewolves in School.]
Thank you to everyone who is filling the internet with great book fodder via blogging. I (heart) you all.
A Little What... What - I love Napster credits. Below is my most recent investments (as illustrated via Wordle.net). [image: Wordle: Napster Credits]
