Have resolved to make better use of my Delicious account to keep track of books I read about online and want to remember to check out. Such as:
- The Miss Rumphius Effect: National Puzzle Month – Great Reads – “Here are some books and/or series that will encourage readers put on their thinking caps. Also included are links to related puzzling resources.” I keep forgetting to check out Winston Breen. Flagging this post so I’ll remember!
- A Year of Reading: Predicting the Caldecott and Newbery Winners 2010 – Mary Lee’s Franki’s predictions, including: “My very favorite picture book of the year, as you all know is OTIS by Loren Long and it is my hope and prediction for the Caldecott.”
- Chasing Ray – Nonfiction Books for Curious Readers – Science book recommendations including Houghton Mifflin’s Scientists in the Field series & Extreme Scientists—looks like stuff up Jane’s alley. Also of interest: “Finally, after reading Anastasia Suen’s Wired, I was reminded yet again of how valuable nonfiction picture books truly are. This patiently written step-by-step overview of electricity’s journey from dam to living room light switch is truly a brilliant book. Suen completely demystifies the process making it clear to even the least technologically inclined.”
