Taking a break

Many of you have probably noticed I have not been posting here for a few weeks. I am simply overwhelmed with lots of other tasks not the least of which is reading for the National Book Award for Young People's Literature. I am taking a long break from posting here. I will still post the books I am reading to Facebook, so you can see good stuff there. And I will still be blogging at LiveJournal as well. I need a break, and this is the one thing I can let go for now.

Are you afraid?

Pair Orion and the Dark with The Dark by Lemony Snicket and put it on a reading ladder with Jumanji and My Pen and Round Trip.

Mack times two

Two books from Jeff Mack to compare and contrast. Perhaps list critical attributes of his work as author and/or illustrator?

Dull as can be

Meet the Dullards, a family so dull that watching paint dry is a favorite pasttime.
