I've just been writing book reviews that have to be appear in traditional print before I can post them here. I also was busy traveling, attending my state library conference and Book Expo America.
Here are some great things that will be coming up soon:
- For kids that can't wait for The Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (Book #9 due out in November), The Wimpy Kid School Planner will be out in June. If this can't keep your student using an organizer, probably nothing will.
- Loot by Jude Watson will also be available in June. I'm reading it right now, and I can tell that it's going to be very popular. Advance reviews have been great.
- SYNC's free downloads continue all summer. If you're an audio book fan, you really should take advantage of this. A classic book is paired with a similarly-themed modern book. Both can be downloaded for free, forever, for you. You can't beat it.
