Marc Tyler Nobleman is my kind of guy – always looking to have a good time on his blog. You remember last year when he had authors read their bad reviews, right? He’s back with an idea he adapted from Vanity Fair – The Proust Questionnaire. Over the next few days, a bunch of familiar faces will be answering the same 10 questions. I’ll be reading. Click here to check out the first batch.


One of my life goals is to get to Kidlitcon. I will make it happen. Not this year, but it will happen. Do you blog about books for kids? Kid Lit Con is for you. It’s happening on October 9-10 in Baltimore. Click here to learn more.

  1. Travis! You gotta come to KidLitCon! We need you! :)

  2. Thanks for the mention and kind word, Travis!

  3. You really make it appear really easy along with your presentation but
    I to find this matter to be actually something that I
    believe I might never understand. It seems too complex and very large
    for me. I’m looking forward on your next publish, I’ll attempt to
    get the hold of it!
