Book(re)Marks – Our Monthly Lists

Cybils blingJanuary has been a busy book month for bookworms. For many it is all about the American Library Association Youth Media Awards.

For me its been all about the Children’s and Young Adult Bloggers’ Literary Awards; watching a certain 11-year-old get back into a bedtime reading habit, even when she’s too tired to keep her eyes open; and finally posting some book reviews that have been sitting way too long. Even at two a day, there are many more to write!

Which brings me to this post … for years now, I’ve written an end-of-month list of what we’re reading / have read. Last year I whittled it down to highlights and book remarks about books that were fun to read or grabbed our interest.

The lists stop here. From here on out – like when I’m able to publish reviews of my Cybils finalists – I’m going to post Book(re)Marks as we go along. One book at a time, while the thoughts are still fresh. I’ll also be sharing more books with the kidlit communities I’ve joined on Google+.

I hope I’ll see you there.
