Winners

I had a couple of contests ending, so I thought I would announce the winners!

The Cinderella Society Winner: Sophia at
The Book Basement

Here's her entry: "Being empowered means to take control of your own life proudly, in my opinion. You may need help, I'll admit, but you also need strength. You must have strong will and stick to what you believe in. You shouldn't sway your opinion, no matter what other people say about it. Plus, you always have to feel good about yourself. Walk down the hallways with your head held high and don't let anyone bring you down. Stay strong, believe in yourself, and don't be afraid to ask for help. That's what I think empowerment means."

LOVE IT! (And just so you know, I made GreenBeanSexyMan pick the winning entry!)

Perfect Chemistry Prize Pack: Natalie at
Mindful Musings

This one was a random drawing, but for entries I asked for lit crushes. Natalie said Jace from Mortal Instruments and Ian from The Host. It was so fun reading everyone's lit crushes, I might compile the list and post it if people are interested.

There are more contests still going on, so check the sidebar-and good luck!:)

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There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference.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
