Around the interwebs

I have been in a haze of Summer Reading Club planning this week and I have not been keeping up with the interwebs like I usually do. I do have a couple of links for you, though!

If you're going to BEA in May, this will be useful. Kristi of The Story Siren has compiled a spreadsheet listing YA author signings. It is fabulous and I will definitely be using it.

Hmm... Now that you mention it, the Top 100 Children's Book List was pretty, well, white. Luckily, Emily of That Blog Belongs to Emily Brown has a plan.  Head over to her post and see how you can adjust your scores using the CCBC's 50 Multicultural Books Every Child Should Know. Thanks to Bezzi for the link (and happy birthday!).

Susan's posting about the benefits of baby storytime over at Booklights. I don't know if I have expressed this adequately, but our baby program is one of my favorite storytimes to do! Check your local library and see if they offer something for little ones. If they don't, ask them to!

Carlisle Cullen tops Forbes's list of the 15 Richest Fictional Characters. The Tooth Fairy and Lucille Bluth also make the list. I... don't even know what to say about that. Thanks to my Nerdgirls for the link.

And on that note, I'm off to work on our Summer Reading Club video. The music will be stuck in my head forevar.

Storytime...ah. I wish my kids were still young enough for that. And yet when they were, I remember being frustrated when they were too squirmy! :)

Kristi is a goddess for putting that spreadsheet together isn't she? It's going to make it so much easier for the YA lover!

When are you coming in for BEA?

Michelle, I am kinda doing a whirlwind for BEA. I'm flying in Tuesday afternoon and leaving Thursday evening. I bought my plane tickets before I knew about Book Blogger Con! Sigh. Maybe next year...
