TwitterLinksHere are highlights from the links that I shared on Twitter this week @JensBookPage. It's been a quiet week, and thus this is a fairly short list. But there is definitely some interesting reading here for those in need of distraction. Topics this week include: book lists, mock ala awards, books for tweens, diverse books, nonfiction, National Ambassador for Young People's Literature, family reading, growing bookworms, Christmas books, podcasts, parenting, and schools. 

Wishing those who celebrate it a wonderful Christmas, and wishing everyone peace, joy, and understanding in the New Year! I'll be back after January 1st. Thanks so much for reading.
