Today I will be sending out the new issue of the Growing Bookworms weekly 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 books and raising readers. There are currently 418 subscribers.
This week I have two book reviews (one middle grade and one young adult), two announcements about books previously reviewed that are now available, two Kidlitosphere round-ups with links to useful posts from the past week, a Children's Literacy Round-Up, and an announcement about the Cybils longlists being available. The only posts from my blog not included in the newsletter this week are two announcements about a book give-away that I did recently.
In addition to the books reviewed this week, I've recently finished re-reading The Eight by Katherine Neville and I am working on the sequel, The Fire. I also started Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book, but I pre-empted it for Neville's two books (this is not a negative comment on The Graveyard Book, it's just that I've been waiting for The Fire for nearly 10 years now). I have some other commitments coming upover the next few days, and will not be sending out the newsletter next week. But I'll be back on November 4th with an action-packed issue.
Thanks for reading the newsletter, and for growing bookworms!
