And this year is awesome because it is all about Funny Books. Funny Books is something we get asked for at the library all of the time, but since it is not a genre categorization, it is often hard for us to find titles. We usually rely on working together within our libraries and across libraries making and sharing lists.
But now, NPR is going to use their crowdsourcing power all summer to have experts come in to talk about the best funny books and to create a reader generated top 100!
So hold on to your funny bones. This is going to be a lot of fun and will turn into a wonderful resource. Speaking of, don't forget to check the link for the archive of past Summer Reader Polls to use those as a resource right now, while you wait for the Funny Books info to come out.
