I'm going to be a CYBILS round two judge again! I'm part of the YA/MG nonfiction team, and I understand that we are actually picking one book for each age group.
I read mostly fiction, but I always MEAN to read more nonfiction, and I always enjoy it when I do, so I'm kind of excited to be un-typecast like this.
CYBLS, author visits, Global Read Aloud connections across the country and globe, connecting with authors on Skype for next February's World Read Aloud day--all stuff I'd never dreamed of two years ago. This blogging thing--this BOOK LOVING COMMUNITY of readers and teachers and librarians and authors--has brought a lot to my life and work. *Mwah* (that was an air kiss, in case you were wondering. Not an evil laugh, which would be *mwah-ha-ha*)
