Suggested Bordem Busters

Ahh, what lovely weather we're having. Seems to be the case an awful lot this year. One could almost succumb to those winter blahs...

Almost, but not quite because we're smart & know to keep busy! Today's Recommendations?

  1. Check out http://kashmirasheth.typepad.com/ & you'll understand why I'm so stoked about Kashmira Sheth's (fingers crossed) potential visit.
  2. Now, since you're surfing, visit: http://www.teenreads.com/. One of my favorites, and since I'm feeling generous, thought I'd share. :) Also, I get a lot of ideas for new books here, so if you happen upon titles that intrigue you, don't keep those thoughts to yourself!
  3. Stop by the library and peruse the shelves. Maybe you'll find something that'll inspire a new hobby.
  4. Spend a little quality time with your sibling (board games can be fun!) Any personal faves? I wouldn't mind a few suggestions. :)
  5. Last, but not least, swing by the reference desk starting later next week & pick up a copy of our February pick for teen book club. Since we've got all month to read, I opted for 2. Read one, or read 'em both...

Magic or Madness by Justine Larbalestier

Spelldown: The Big-Time Dreams of a Small-Town Word Whiz by Karon Luddy

I'll check to see if there are enough copies out there. Were you thinking of adding it to this month's batch, or saving it for next?

Sounds good to me--and the "Stones..." sounds good too. Plenty of time to pick up the other two--like on Wed., before or after the bash! :)
