Tips for Growing Bookworms: Series Recap and Future Plans

Growing Bookworms Newsletter: July 12

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 1439 subscribers. Currently I am sending the newsletter out once every two weeks.

Newsletter Update: In this issue I have five book review posts and one children's literacy roundup (published in detail at Rasco from RIF). I also have the last two installments in my Tips for Growing Bookworms series (originally published at Booklights). Finally, I have a post with reasons to attend September's KidLitCon in Seattle. The only post from the past two weeks not included in the newsletter is one with photos from a visit to my home by the RIF BeBookSmart car, B. B. Smart.

Reading Update: Since the last newsletter, I finished three books, one YA and two adult mysteries (as well as various picture books and board books, see those here and here):

Clearly, I need to get back to reading more middle grade novels. My to be read stack is enormous. I'm still listening to The Headless Cupid by Zilpha Keatley Snyder. I'm reading (and lingering over) Forever by Maggie Stiefvater.

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