Bloggiesta!

So I wasn't originally planning on participating in the Bloggiesta hosted by Maw Books but since I've spent the day working on my blog, I figured I might as well join up! I'm not planning to do the full challenge, just work on blog stuff today, but I thought it'd be fun to see what other people were doing.

So far I've made header tabs for my blog, which I've been wanting to do for awhile and I've organized the posts which link to those tabs.

Now I'm working on putting on all my reviews on Goodreads and I changed my To Be Read widget to Goodreads since I've found most bloggers are on there and I actually like it better than the other book sites. (Bad me for not joining sooner!)

I'm also planning on writing up the rest of my reviews from the 48 Hour Reading Challenge and hopefully schedule some meme posts for Want it Wednesday.

It's a lot of work but it's fun!

  3. I originally planned to just spend a little time on the bloggiesta event today... and then I got hooked and I've been working on it most of the day! Where does the time go? Your blog reminded me that I wanted to add a link to my GoodReads account. Good work on your blog!

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
