New Year's Resolutions
It's January 1st, and you know what that means! It's time to make promises for improvements. I've made several personal resolutions in the past (and some have stuck), but today, I'm talking all about zee blog. I am going to make a conscious effort to do the following:
Not to *always* be fooled by a pretty cover.
Write quality reviews that touch on literary elements and authenticity.
Read books on nationally recognized best award lists - William C. Morris Award, Lonestar Reading List, TAYSHAS Reading List, Michael L. Printz Award, Margaret A. Edwards Award, etc...
Post meaningful discussions that focus on issues important to children's and young adult literature - literacy, reluctant readers, reader's advisory, etc...
Participate in nationally recognized events that promote reading and library resources - Teen Reads Week, Banned Books Week, Teen Tech Week, etc..
Participate in blog tours and book tours.
Launch Banned Book Tours
