Tips for Growing Bookworms: #7 Point Out Useful Information from Reading: A Booklights Reissue

Growing Bookworms Newsletter: June 14

JRBPlogo-smallToday 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 1411 subscribers. Currently I am sending the newsletter out once every two weeks.

Newsletter Update: In this issue I have four book review posts (two picture books, two middle grade) and one children's literacy roundup. I also have a post showing photos of "the wake of Baby Bookworm" around my house, and my wrap-up post from the 48 Hour Book Challenge hosted by MotherReader. I published six other book reviews (mostly middle grade fiction) as part of the 48 Hour Book Challenge. I have not included these in the newsletter. You can find links to all six in the wrap-up post below. The only other post from my blog not included in the newsletter was An Appreciation for National Ambassador Jon Scieszka: A Booklights Reissue.

48hbc_newReading Update: Since the last newsletter, I finished eight books (besides various picture books and board books, see those here and here). In addition to the six from the 48 Hour Book Challenge, I finished:

  • Emily Diamand: Flood and Fire. The Chicken House (Scholastic). Completed June 2, 2011. Review to come.
  • Michael Connelly: The Fifth Witness. Little, Brown. Completed June 2, 2011, on MP3.

I'm still listening to The Headless Cupid by Zilpha Keatley Snyder (when Baby Bookworm is listening with me in the car). I've also started listening to Live Wire, a Myron Bolitar mystery, by Harlan Coben. I'm reading The Fox Inheritance (The Jenna Fox Chronicles) by Mary Pearson.

How about you? What have you been reading and enjoying? Thanks for reading the newsletter, and for growing bookworms.
