I haven't had a chance to catch up with everything that's been going on in the blogs while I was away, but here are a few not-to-be-missed items:
- An all-new issue of the online journal The Edge of the Forest is now available. There's lots of great stuff, including an interview with Pam Coughlan about the 48 Hour Book Challenge, and two blogging writer features.
- Readergirlz have also released a new issue for August. This month features Ironside, a teen fantasy novel by Holly Black. The issue includes author chat, book discussion questions and book club suggestions, companion reading, and a while-you-read playlist. Next month's featured book will be Sold, by Patricia McCormick.
- The first ever Picture Book Carnival was published on August 1st at Mentor Texts & More. Some wonderful books are featured.
- Little, Brown has put together a cool new website in honor of this week's release of the third title in Stephenie Meyer's Twilight. I am eagerly awaiting my copy of Eclipse. I read somewhere that there's a million copy first printing, so I imagine a lot of other people will be reading it, too.
