Books We Read – August 2011
Another slow month … bigger chapter books, more time off line, and a week kicked off with a misfortunate event, summer swim championships, an earthquake, and the resumption of school.
The good news about the earthquake was that it opened the door for some research and you-know-who devoured every newspaper article she could get her hands on! Ah, small victories.
We haven’t put up any reviews, but would love to get our visitors reading YOURS! We are using InLinkz on the Reading Tub website now. InLinkz (www.inlinkz.com) offers us a more secure system for connecting our reviews – and has thumbnails, too!! I cannot say enough great things about Team Inlinkz and their level of support and service … or about how they helped us convert 2000(!) book reviews to the new tool. Or just add a link to a favorite recent read below!
Received: 17 New Reads: 12 …. New Reviews: 1
Please use these category headings to “jump” to your favorite children’s and young adult book categories. We hope this makes the monthly list (and our annual list pages) more enjoyable for you … not to mention a little more manageable to browse.
