Thursday Blurb: Nonfiction Monday, Booklights, and paraskevidekatriaphobia

Monday will be here before we know it, this coming week, Travis Jonkers is hosting a Nontraditional Nonfiction Monday at 100 Scope Notes. He’s encouraging us to create a review/present our discussion from a different perspective or with some of the tools we often talk about on our blogs. Check out Travis’ video announcing his idea. Are you up for the challenge? I don’t think I’ve EVER said this … I can’t wait ’til Monday.

Yesterday at Booklights, I talked about fairy tales and folklore as a way to engage readers of all ages. The inspiration for the column was Fran Hawk’s new book Ten Tips for Raising Readers. I’ll be posting my review about that here, soon. On Monday, Susan Kusel talked about using book sales to build your personal library with bargains.  And that got me thinking about that tome not so long ago when I was starting to select books to start a children’s library. So, I’ll ask you …  if you were going to build a library for a child, what books would be at the top of your list?

So, are you wondering what the big word in the title is? Did you already look it up? It’s a fear of Friday the 13th. This isn’t Friday, it’s Thursday, so today will be our lucky day – yours and mine.
