I’m about to run out to a birthday party, but here are a few posts that I am loving today!
- Over at Wizards Wireless you can read a great review of Gary D. Schmidt’s new novel, Trouble. Gary wrote one of my favorite novels last year- the incomparable The Wednesday Wars. I am scouring the kidlitosphere for an ARC of Trouble. In the meantime, Susan’s review will have to hold me over.
- Jen, of Jen Robinson’s Book Page, was lucky enough to attend a reading by Jon Scieszka. Her wrap-up is great and Jon sounds wonderful!
- Stacey and Ruth of Two Writing Teachers have a new look for their blog. The makeover is wonderful and they really run a phenomenal blog.
- Last, but not least, The Class of 2k8 is running a contest where entrants can win a 3-pack of books. The contest is an internet scavenger hunt and I can’t wait to participate. The books that you can win also sound great! Plus, The Class of 2k8 website is a great way to hear about new books from first-time authors this year.
Hopefully, these will tide you over for a bit while I enjoy a night out.
