Bookseller Chick

Bookseller Chick is the blog of an anonymous someone who works in a bookstore. While her writing is excellent and great fun, it is her incredible blog roll that outshines all others! It just goes on and on and on and on, with link after link to great children’s lit blogs. Like I need an even longer list of blogs to read! 😉
