1. I've been slacking on non-fiction reviews (and reviews in general) the past couple of weeks. Rest assured, I'm getting back on the ball and all will be well shortly. In the meantime, do check out Anastasia's roundup for Non-Fiction Monday!
2. I got an email about a very intriguing new blog: The Picnic Basket. From the blog:
"Welcome to The Picnic Basket where school and library professionals taste new and forthcoming children's books with first-come, first-serve sample copies of books for kids of all ages. Read the books, then post your reviews here for your colleagues to read."
It looks like each week new books will be posted and potential reviewers can request copies. I will definitely be keeping my eyes on this one!
