Links I Shared on Twitter this Week: January 9

TwitterLinksHere are highlights from the links that I shared on Twitter this week @JensBookPage. I have the usual smattering of book lists, along with links to stories about diversity, growing bookworms, literacy programs, reading, publishing, schools, libraries, parenting, and the kidlitosphere. As there were many links related to the Cybils awards this week, I published those separately yesterday
