A new Yahoo Group email list has been started by Richie Partington, of Richie’s Picks. Middle_school_lit focuses on books for middle grades. 200 people have joined since it was started last week! It is already filled with great discussion, recommended reads, and much more.
Comingsoon.net has the story that the creator of The OC will be doing a series based on the Gossip Girl books. It will be an hour-long drama.
I really don’t know what to think about this. I am always dismayed when trashy novels get the attention, but then I tend to hate what many studios do to the great novels. It is rather a Catch-22. But teen girls should be thrilled and you can be equally excited to know that the 11th volume in the series will be out soon!
I am back after a stomach flu and hoping to post plenty! I have a stack of picture books waiting on my desk to tell you all about and some recommended sites too.
