The Slap Dash Edition

The Written Nerd is asking the question we all want answered, “What is the future of bookselling?” and inviting you wonderful people to answer. Responses may be used in a column that she is putting together for Friday. I can’t wait to read not only your thoughts, but hers, since this is a question often on my mind.

There’s a whirlwind of children’s book reviewing going on right now, and Big A little a has your hookup to learn about the best and the brightest (or the worst and the dullest) books out there for kids.

During the firestorm that was going on about ARCs (Advanced Reader Copies), the selling of ARCs, and various other ARC related activities, I discovered BookCrossing, and then just the other day I had a customer come in with a book bearing (baring? Where’s my Chicago Manual of Style?) one of their labels! Check it out.

I’m going to be hosting a stop on Ayun Halliday’s virtual blog tour the 27th of June to promote her new book, Dirty Sugar Cookies. If you have any questions for Ayun or any of those other authors (Karen Karbo, Maria V. Snyder, Louise Ure, and Kate Rothwell/Summer Devon) that I said I would interview (and I totally am, I swear), please leave a note here or email them to me.
