Random Updates and News

I get e-mailed about great things to share, so I thought I'd put them all in one big post.

-I was contacted by the YA Reader's Advisor (I love that title) from Evanston Public Library about an interview the library hosted with YA author
Ann E. Burg, author of All the Broken Peices. Check out the interview-and the teen blog/website. I love the site and hope I can get my library teen page looking as cool!

Teen Fire Ning is hosting a Dream Up Your Own Romance Title contest in honor of the release of The Summer of Skinny Dipping by Amanda Howells. Have you ever thought of a genius book title, even before you came up with the plot? We’re launching another contest and a chance to win copies of The Summer of Skinny Dipping. It’s time to get lovey-dovey in the sunshine and share your original title for a summer romance novel!

-I love audiobooks, so when I found out about SYNC, an audibook community, I had to share!
SYNC is an online community that seeks to build the audience for audiobooks among readers 13 and up.
• Each week, SYNC will give away 2 FREE downloads--a popular Young Adult title paired with a Classic title that appears on Summer Reading lists--starting July 1 through September 1, 2010.
• SYNC is hosted at
Audiobook Community, a new social networking site for the discovery of audiobooks.
• Listeners can choose to join a conversation about these titles with authors, narrators, publishers, librarians, and other listeners. Listeners are not required to join Audiobook Community to follow the conversation on SYNC nor to download FREE titles from SYNC.

-Also, anyone who is heading to ALA and would like to meet up, let me know. I'm making my schedule and I'd love to hang out with YA bloggers/readers!
