Growing Bookworms Newsletter: December 19: The 13th Blog Anniversary Edition
Focus: My Word for the Year

Links I Shared on Twitter this Week: December 21: Happy New Year Edition!

TwitterLinksHere are highlights from the links that I shared on Twitter this week @JensBookPage. Topics in this very brief issue include #BookLists, #Cybils, #Failure, #FunnyBooks, #HigherEd, #JoyOfReading, #ScreenTime, education, reading, research, and technology. 

My daughter is on vacation for the next two weeks, and I will most likely not be blogging. Wishing all who celebrate it a wonderful Christmas. I hope that everyone has a peaceful New Year, and that you spend the holiday period surrounded by people you love. And books. Plenty of books. 

For what it's worth, when asked by my daughter what I want for Christmas I answered that all I want is more time to read. We shall see... Happy New Year!
