Hi, Susan! Do I just post the link here? Thanks for letting me know about Little Lov'n Monday. :o)

The link I am sharing is to the latest edition of the Carnival of Children's Literature, a monthly collection of some of the best blog posts on children's literature. Enjoy, all!!

susan said...

Yep, that easy, Tarie. Come back tomorrow and find links on front page of post. Comment to others and you're entered in the drawing. Thanks for coming by.

I got a mouse pad with A Tree Grows in Brooklyn on it, so I see it every day. But I have little idea of what the book is about. *shame*

susan said...

It's Monday. Comment, people. :-)

susan said...

Links? Oh, no. No lov'n today? I'm going to try not to panic.

Tarie said...

I'm here! *hug* Imma tweet this... :o)

Color Online said...

Where is everyone? Has given a little lov'n gotten old?

Tarie said...

I gave some love to YA Blog List. Ahehehe.

susan said...

I've tried repeatedly to comment at YA. Won't accept my comments.

Becky LeJeune said...

Hi there! Thanks for the mention here, I had a commenter tell me she found me through you -- yay!

Claudia said...

Hey, thanks for posting a link to my site! I appreciate it. I'm just now getting back into the blogosphere after a stint teaching and grading - so I don't have anything to recommend, but I do plan to visit the links mentioned above.

Always late to the table ...

I've been checking out Geoffrey Philips since I found him here a few weeks ago (sigh, still sooo jealous that he was invited to Calabash this year!), and I went over and commented on a couple of his posts. Also commented at "Grumpy bookseller," "The Bottom of Heaven," and "Color Online."

As far as links, I've mostly been trying to keep my head above water with the end of the semester looming. I enjoyed checking out your links, however, and maybe I'll be a little self-serving and link to a post I put up last week that I'm still stewing over. Maybe someone could suggest a possible course of action ...

I am starting to really look forward to little Lov'n Monday. I left a few comments.
BTW I loved Campbell's 72 Hour Hold in your prize list.
Its a must read for anyone who loved Wally Lamb's I Know This Much Is True
