Links I Shared on Twitter this Week: December 19

TwitterLinksHere are highlights from the links that I shared on Twitter this week @JensBookPage. It's a bit of a light installment this week, but does include the usual array of book lists. I also have a few links on the Cybils awards, diversity, growing bookworms, gift ideas, and the Kidlitosphere. Thanks for reading! I'll be taking next weekend off for Christmas, but expect to be back with a new link roundup soon afterwards.
