Growing Bookworms Newsletter: May 27

Jpg_book007Tonight 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 books and raising readers. There are currently 762 subscribers. 

Newsletter Update: I just got back from vacation, so this issue is a bit light. However, I have one book review, one post with Kidlitosphere news, and an enormous children's literacy round-up. I also have an installment of my recurring Reviews that Made Me Want the Book feature, and two announcements about books previously reviewed that are now available. And finally, I have a brief post about the joys of Outdoor Reading, linked to a longer version over at Booklights.

Reading Update: In the past two weeks I read:

  • City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare (second book in the Mortal Instruments series).
  • Tattoo by Jennifer Lynn Barnes.
  • The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams.
  • Chasing Darkness (An Elvis Cole novel) by Robert Crais (adult mystery by one of my favorite authors).
  • The Doomsday Book by Connie Willis (adult science fiction, a highly recommended product of my most recent reviews that made me want the book column).

I'm currently reading Pastworld by Ian Beck. And hoping to get caught up on my overflowing inbox and Google Reader tomorrow. How about you? What have you been reading and enjoying? Thanks for reading, and for growing bookworms!
