Back to Life, Back to Reality

Now that my part in this year's Cybils are over and done with, it's back to our regularly featured program around here.  I'll be featuring several of the nominees for the fiction picture book category that I enjoyed and I will also get around to reviewing some of the 50 kajillion other books I have been meaning to review.  Like have you read the Hunger Game yet?  How about the first book in the 39 Clues series? Oh, and what about the finalists in the other Cybils categories?  Get my take on them very soon!

I have read the "Hunger Games" and it is fabulous!
Hello, my name is Kelly and I ran across your blog while researching some things for my own book club and fell in love with your incite and recommendations! Do you currently live in Utah? I'd love to talk to you sometime about you MA in Children’s Literature and your wonderful Children’s book club! What a great and refreshing idea! (I promise I'm not a weirdo!) You can visit me at my blog at but you will see pictures of me acting like a weirdo from New Years, don't judge me! I hope to hear from you,

Oh, P.S. I saw on your blog that you looking for great spots to eat and shop etc. and I wondered if you have been to "Food For Thought" in Draper yet. I blogged about it here if you want to read:

It's my favorite lunch spot when me and my girlfriend need a day off together!

I've always been a fan of treasure hunts, riddles, puzzles, I've wanted to get into the 39 clues. But for some reason, I haven't taken the plunge yet.

I hope to this spring...I'd love to try and work through in-depth mysteries/puzzles with my kids. :)
