Series: Friday Round-Up, vocabulary

Friday Round-Up

Each week I round-up all the (mostly book-related) articles/blog posts/book reviews/websites/videos that entertained me during the week. Enjoy!

Articles

Peter Sis talks to NPR about his new, beautifully-illustrated, adult book The Conference of the Birds. Read or listen here.

“Dear Book Lover” at the Wall Street Journal has a great article about fiction books that read like non-fiction, and vice versa.

Publishing Perspectives dives into a discussion of Roaxnne Coady’s new website, “Just the Right Book!

Can’t figure out how to organize that new bookshelf? BookRiot has the answer.

Library

The Dewey Decimal Rap. No, really, that’s all there is to say about that.

Vocabulary


I absolutely ADORE lists like this. “The Top 10 Relationship Words That Aren’t Translatable Into English” 

Website

Looking for a book recommendation? Each month? Check out Just the Right Book!, a website you can belong to that will send you hand-picked selections by the staff at R.J. Julia, a fantastic independent bookstore.

TakeYourChildToABookstore.org That says it all really, doesn’t it?

  2. I feel like you single-handedly help me keep my finger on the pulse of bookish things. You're pretty awesome that way.

Book review time! 
The Story of Diva and Flea
By Mo Willems + Tony DiTerlizzi
Loved this as a read-aloud for little ones that can sit still for longer picture books, or, as it's a beginning chapter book, great for ages 6-8 who are learning how to read more confidently by themselves.

#poemaday #nationalpoetrymonth #haiku #kerouac #wildlyread #poem #poetry First day of full-time hours in my new job as a bookseller for an independent bookstore, and it's staff pick time! I fell in love with this book years ago, before the movie was even a dream. Though I'm not a fan of the movie tie-in cover, I'll gladly place this book in readers' hands. . . .
