In the meantime, though, here are a few links I've been saving up:
- Via Cynsations comes news of the Pacific Coast Children's Writers Workshop in beautiful Santa Cruz. August too hot for you? Wing it over here to the West Coast! Only 35 spots, though, so join their e-mail list for updates.
- Via Chicken Spaghetti, links about book reviewing that should be of interest to bloggers.
- On ShelfTalker, the perfect gift for your favorite librarian. Or me.
- George W. Bush did NOT win this year's Foot In Mouth Award. But in other news, "w00t" was Merriam-Webster's word of the year after an online vote.
- My mom sends me some great links, like the Institute for the Future of the Book, which does research to chronicle the shift from printed page to screen.
- In fact, if it weren't for my mom, I wouldn't know about Scholastic's purported successor to Harry Potter, The 39 Clues. Anyone else heard about that?
