Around the Interwebs

I've just got a few things to share with you this Sunday.

First of all, Jen Robinson reminds us that today, April 12, is Drop Everything And Read Day, a day for celebrating reading and making reading a priority. So drop what you're doing and spend some time reading!

If you need help picking out some books for little ones, Chronicle of an Infant Bibliophile has a great post up with experts' tips on picking out books for babies. Various librarians and kidlit enthusiasts offer tips for encouraging a love of books in the very young.

And speaking of tips, Travis offers Three Tips for a Successful Book Fair over at 100 Scope Notes. School librarians, check this out! He's giving some advice on how to make your book fair work, complete with a photo of a Wild Thing.

I know it's a short post today, but I'm going to Drop Everything And Read (finishing up Fade and Evermore and trying to squeeze in Bones of Faerie because it's overdue - eep!).

I need to read Evermore, but I loved Fade and Bones of Faerie was really good as well...I wasn't sure how I would like it, but I'd recommend it now. :)

You should check out Willow by Julia Hoban. It's amazing, and there is a huge giveaway if people buy the book in april. details on my blog.

I hope that you were successful in dropping everything to read, Abby. Ironically, I haven't been able to do any reading yet today myself (assuming that reading blogs doesn't count), but I was listening to What Happened to Cass McBride in the car earlier.

I dropped everything and read today! Had to get away from the hullabaloo of the Easter commotion and kick back and relax a while. Got about 1/3 of the way through Jodi Picoult's newest, Handle with Care... it's almost too good to put down!
