Books We Read – June 2011

I mentioned last month that we’ve updated the Reading Tub website. As part of the next phase, we’ve updated our linking tool, too. 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.

See a title you’ve reviewed? Click “our book talk” to get to the site and add your link … we’re happy to drive traffic your way!

Received: 126 (68 are from BookExpo America) ….. New Reads: 16 …. New Reviews: 10

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.

If you’ve read any of these books, we’d love to link to them so readers can learn more about them! Just click “Our Book Talk” to add your link to our website review (via InLinkz) or just paste the URL into a comment and I’ll do the rest.
