  1. Great article. He mentioned some of my absolute faves. Catching Fire, Hunger Games, Leviathan and True Diary of a Part-time Indian. I just put his recommendation, Lockdown, on my library list. Glad to see someone out there pulling for YA. Thanks for the link!

  2. Read the article with great interest, no big surprises in the titles mentioned of course but as I got to the end of it, there was a link to the Hoffington press and a related pic book article. Followed that link and a few more until I ended up finding a pic book called "Mommy why is there a server in the house". A server? huh?
    So, I just had to type in the title, watch the video on youtube and was trying to figure out how this book could possibly have been published... when I read it's just propoganda, basically an ad, fictional author, for Microsoft. HAHA (if you don't laugh, you cry) I'm not sure if the writer of the article was under the impression it really was a commercially published book or not. Amazingly there was mention of this title and some others being on the same level as "The Giving Tree". Now that's a real stretch!
    So, if anyone has any Holiday down time, here is a link to the Microsoft pb and some other "different" (to put it kindly) pb books out there (that may not be "all good":)

  3. Oh, I must mention that "Tango Makes Three" is grouped in with many of the self published ones and though perhaps "unconventional" to some people that are conventional, it's most certainly is an "it's all good" book!
