Items of Interest, Jan. 12

A Scholar's Blog puts a fun idea on the table: a group discussion of Susan Cooper's novel King of Shadows. It will start on February 6th. More info here. The book's reading level seems to be from age 9 on up, so I"m pretty sure I qualify. (Did I hear an "and then some" from the peanut gallery? Hey, watch it.)

Ooh! I'm liking the new template. It's very strong in a good way.

Thanks for the links!

Thanks for the heads up! I can't even see the new design. I've got browser issues... Oh, and you're welcome for the link.

Susan, thanks for the mention for the Book Discussion Group... Bloggers keep on mentioning it, here and there, and so they keep sending more participants my way. This is going to be far bigger than I dreamed was possible !

It sound like fun, Michele. I have the book from the library with a much less dramatic cover than the image on your site.

I hope you enjoy it Susan and look forward to discussing it with you (and everyone else !)...
