Thursday Afternoon Visits: Pre-Vacation Edition

So last week I did this whole post about how I needed to scale the blog back a bit. Everyone was very supportive. And then, as Charlotte astutely pointed out, I proceeded to post MORE than usual. Partly that was because I already had some of the reviews stored up. And partly because there's just a lot of good energy and discussion going on in the Kidlitosphere this week, and I wanted to be part of it.

But after this post, I'll be taking a blog vacation until August 4th. I'm going to try reading books instead of blogs for a week or so, if I can keep myself out of my Google Reader. I hope to come back recharged and ready for fresh discussions. Meanwhile, here are some links to keep you occupied:

And that's it for today. I wish you all well over the next week or so, and I'll be back on the 4th.
