Notes on May 2013
…I learned a six-second book review is pushing it.
I attempted the world’s first book review using 6 second video service Vine. The result? I think I need more Vines.
…a heartthrob went missing in the library.
Poor Taylor Lautner, the guy appears on a book cover, and it goes missing.
…we looked at the books of summer.
Of all the books coming out in the next three months, these caught my eye the most.
…we previewed x2.
The fine folks at Groundwood Books and Kids Can Press showed their
recently-released and upcoming titles.
…a page count conspiracy was unearthed.
Have you noticed books for kids are getting longer? You aren’t the only one. This special report shows that it might not be accidental.
