Today I will be sending out the new issue of the Growing Bookworms email newsletter. (If you would like to subscribe, you can find a sign-up form here.) The Growing Bookworms newsletter contains content from my blog focused on children's and young adult books and raising readers. There are 1348 subscribers. Currently I am sending the newsletter out once every two weeks.
Newsletter Update: In this issue I have five book review posts (two young adult novels and three picture books), along with two children's literacy roundups (one here, and one at Rasco from RIF). I also have a reissue of a post that I did at Booklights about the joy of revisiting favorite books. Not included in the newsletter this week, I also shared a quick post with ideas for Family Literacy Day.
Reading Update: Since the last newsletter, I finished two books:
- Brian Falkner: Brain Jack. Random House. Completed January 26, 2010. My review.
- A. S. King: Please Ignore Vera Dietz. Random House. Completed January 31, 2011. My review.
I'm currently reading One Was a Soldier by Julia Spencer-Fleming (the lastest from the Clare Fergusson / Russ Van Alstyne mystery series). I'm still listening to The Quiet Gentleman by Georgette Heyer and reading Clementine, Friend of the Week by Sara Pennypacker to Baby Bookworm. Our progress has been slow with Clementine because BB keeps trying to eat it ;-)
How about you? What have you been reading and enjoying? Thanks for reading the newsletter, and for growing bookworms.
