Can we read another book please?  Not that I haven't been reading since last year, I just thought a new/old YA book would be nice.  Thoughts?

The Judy Blume Question...

If you've never read Judy Blume before, this may not be a question you can answer, but for those of you who have read Judy Blume, this may be something interesting for you to consider.

We know Judy Blume has written books on a variety of levels that would fall into the YA category...books like Are you There G-d, It's Me, Margaret, or Then Again, Maybe I won't, but also, books for older readers-Tiger Eyes, Deenie, Forever. Not that there's any reason we can't read more than one Judy Blume book, but, do you have a preference as to which you would prefer to read first-younger or older Judy Blume?

Also, you may be interested in Everything I Needed to Know About Being a Girl I Learned from Judy Blume which comes out in a few weeks.

(And please, if you've got something to say about the April book, even if you hated it, respond to this post.)

April Discussion Post

Here's a place to discuss the April Book selection "I was a Non-Blonde Cheerleader"-did you love it or hate it? What did it remind you of? Are the sequels something you would consider reading? What else do you have to say?

All comments screened until May 1.

Our Book for April

melebeth's pick, (mostly) for April is I Was a Non Blonde Cheerleader by Kieran Scott.

Grab yourself a copy from somewhere, and start reading. We'll open up a post for discussion questions soon.

If you've got extra book budget, other titles we've got on the table are Summer of My German Soldier, Book of Three, and From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler.

Keep telling us what you want to read, too. We've got many months and many more books.

(And if you're on Good Reads, please let me know.)

Welcome and Nominations

Welcome all.

We look forward to hearing what you have to say about the books we've chosen, and seeing what books you want to read.

The basic rules for nominating a book:

  • it must be available in English (whether it's in translation or originally written in English)

  • it should be somewhere around a grade five/ten year old reading level or above-a chapter book

  • you must provide title and author

  • it should be readily available from major booksellers and/or libraries

  • And with that, I open nominations for first book, to be read in April and discussed in May.
