Around the interwebs

Don't forget to check out the Winter Blog Blast Tour happening next week! Tons of fabulous authors will be interviewed all over the kidlitosphere and you won't want to miss it. You also won't want to miss Colleen's Holiday Book Recommendation Event, which is happening the week after Thanksgiving (and in which everyone can participate). I will be posting about holiday gift books starting December 1, so keep your eyes out for that!

If you just can't wait until December 1, check out Books for the Holidays where they are already posting some great holiday gift ideas. This site exists to encourage people to buy books as gifts this holiday season. (Link via Jen Robinson.)

Sarah encourages us to nominate education/teacher-related blogs for the 2008 Edublog Awards. There are 14 different categories including Best Individual Blog, Best Group Blog, Best Librarian/Library Blog, Most Influential Blog Post, Best Educational Wiki, and more! Make sure your favorite blogs get the recognition they deserve!

There's still time to sign up for Dewey's second annual blogger Secret Santa. You have until November 18! (Link via Book Nut.)

The ALSC has announced additions to their Great Websites for Kids list. This is a great resource if you're looking for links to add to your library's website.

And I don't know if y'all are already following Reviewer X, but I think you should. She has a great feature called YA Connection with tons (and TONS) of links to book reviews, author interviews, giveaways, and more.
