Of interest

On Bookshelves of Doom, I saw a link for Body Image Week on the blog My Favorite Author. The blog says, "We have invited bloggers from The Story Siren, Presenting Lenore, and In Bed With Books to participate and share their perspective and experience. And we are excited to also have authors Deborah Lytton, Sarah Darer Littman, Sara Zarr, Megan Frazer, Laurie Halse Anderson, Sydney Salter and Erin Dionne share their perspective, experience and advice. At the end of the week, we'll have a great giveaway for you to enter (by accepting & reporting on the Body Image Challenge) to win some of the books that we blog about this week!" Maybe it will inspire some discussion for us.

On a related topic, I will be reading Wintergirls, the new Laurie Halse Anderson, sometime next week and will blog about it then. I know others (Dawn? Kristin?) have it on their list, so maybe we'll all get around to it at the same time.

Also, I on Monday I finished reading Perfect Fifths, the new Megan McCafferty. Has anyone read it yet? (Julie? Jess?) We could talk about that, too.

How cool are these girls?

I saw this video linked on Bookshelves of Doom today and think it's about the coolest thing I've seen/heard in a long time. Follow the SLJ's Battle of the Books to see who wins!
