I knew there was a reason I liked Kristen Bell

I've been a Kristen Bell fan since Veronica Mars. And now that I've discovered she loves The Hunger Games, I'm an even bigger fan! Check out these tweets she's written about her love for The Hunger Games at Entertainment Weekly. She tweets about her choice between Peeta and Gale, how she loves Katniss, and how excited she was when the book arrived-she even posted a picture of Mockingjay. Not only has she tweeted about the book, she's sharing it with friends, talking about it in interviews, and reading the series multiple times! Thanks Kristen for spreading the word about the series and reading-you rock! What do you think, Kristen Bell for an ALA READ poster??


  1. I've loved her since Veronica Mars too. It's one of my favorite shows. I loved her even more when I found out she's a vegetarian and I love her even more now that I know she likes The Hunger Games. If she did an ALA poster I would definitely buy it. :)

  2. I love love love Kristen Bell! Loved her since Veronica Mars, too :)

  3. Agreed! Kristen is so lovely and funny, and I was psyched when I saw her tweets.

  4. Veronica Mars <3

    I saw some of her Mockingjay tweets and loved them! She's so fun.

  5. Awesome! I've always loved her, and now she just went up a few more points in my opinion!

  6. You guys have stolen the words from my heart...I LOVE Kristen Bell too.. :) BTW have a look at her twitter

  7. I liked her, but now I love her.

  8. As if I didn't love her enough before now I must worship her! I have so much respect for the fact that she's pimping reading. That it's the Hunger Games (and she's Team Peeta!) to boot just rock my socks off.

  9. She would be awesome for an ALA poster. She is beautiful, plays nerdy characters, and knows her books!

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There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference.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