1. If you know of a library that can use a HUGE collection of children's books or YOU would like to donate a new middle grade book, take a gander at this amazing post from the wonderful folks at From the Mixed Up Files.
2. The fine, funny, thoughtful Libba Bray posted a long letter to a young reader who has big dreams, but struggles because her father has different ideas about her future. Libba's response to this young women put so many things into perspective, including understanding our place in this mixed up world. Libba's wise words can benefit ALL of us. Read the teen's letter and Libba's brilliant response HERE.
3. And now for a few funtastic photos from my Skype visit with some very cool students from Maryland.
