Get Ready for a Read-a-Thon!

I learned about Dewey’s Read-a-Thon last October and have been anxiously waiting for the opportunity to participate in this biannual event. It’s almost time for the April Read-a-Thon, and despite the fact that I have to work during a big chunk of the event, I am going to join in the fun. I have already registered (I think I am #74 on the list) and am working on my strategy and TBR list. Are you interested in a 24 hour Read-a-Thon? Want more info? Head on over to the official Read-a-Thon site now and join me. This is a great opportunity to tackle your TBR pile, wins some awesome prizes, and discover some cool new book blogs. Mark your calendar, April 9th is right around the corner.

Stay tuned for more Read-a-Thon news and my Read-a-Thon book list.

Happy Reading!

Name Suggestions

So far I have gotten 2 suggestions

YA Know@RRPL or Teen Zone.  I like the first one.  What do you think?


Name this blog

To pick the perfect name for our new blog it might be helpful to know a bit about it.   You can count on this blog to keep you informed about all teen events and help you find all the answers you need for your homework (no, I won’t do it for you, but I can tell you how to find the answers). You will definitely read about the new books in our collection. You will probably find a movie review, random fun facts, trivia, polls, and interesting links. In short, a little bit of everything and I am always open to suggestions, so please let me know what you think.
