I have a few to share:
- I was reminded at PLA of how much I like YA author Meg Rosoff. Back in 2008 I read How I Live Now. Click through and scroll down to read my review. She has a new book coming out, There is No Dog. I passed on the ARC to the Youth Department.
- It is the 50th anniversary of the publication of A Wrinkle in Time. Many people I bring this up to mention that they read it at too young an age to have really appreciated it. This is a common problem since advanced readers are often given the book early. I have purposely made my daughter wait to read it. But why not read it now, as an adult and rediscover its wonder? Also, When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead which won the Newberry a few years ago was written as an homage to A Wrinkle in Time and is also excellent.
- I have said it many times on this blog before, but I just love Shel Silverstein and cannot re-read his books too many time. It is not possible.
