Interesting Tidbits on the Web:



Hello everyone, I hope you had a great weekend! Did you participate in the Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon?  I should have known better than to attempt it, we were gone and then had company over a vast majority of the day.  Then with all the sun (and sunburns) and prep work / cleanup from company I was so wiped out I went to bed early.  I did get a decent amount of reading done but not nearly as much as I had hoped.

I hope you also enjoyed my RI Author Month, I apologize for not be as on top of it as usual, but I hope you did like the vast selection of books and maybe found one or two that you would like to read.  I do have a question for you, do you like having a whole month of RI Authors or would you rather I break it up and a week here and there throughout the year? Or would you rather I feature individual authors throughout the year? 

Next item on my agenda, it is Children's Book Week!! This is one of my favorite weeks of the year. I love sharing children's books with all of you, ranging in age from picture books up through Middle Grade, and with a wide variety of interests too. I will be posting 3 times a day for the next several days, so please bear with me if this doesn't interest you, I will get back to regular books soon.

Well I am late getting this post up too and I have a lot of work to do here at the office. 

Happy May Day!!


  1. Your weekend sounds like it was crazy! We here in Utah used to do a Utah book month and have been hemming and hawing about shortening it to a week or maybe two weeks and calling it a fortnight ;) it's tough sometimes going for a whole month. If we decide on something that works I'll let you know.

    1. It has been a little hectic around here lately, I keep thinking things will calm down but then something else comes up. It is hard to host a full month and I don't think people stay as interested in a full month as maybe a shorter period. I am thinking maybe doing a week in the spring, a week in the fall and then a few author features throughout the year to kind of spread it out.
