Things to Read While Avoiding the Grocery Store, Wednesday, November 21st

New blog! Welcome to Donalynn Miller, who writes The Book Whisperer for Teacher Magazine. The 6th grade teacher from Texas is the author of the series "Creating Readers," which ran at the magazine earlier this year.

What's your tribe? Authors offer opinions on "brown books" and the multicultural label, at the blogs Finding Wonderland and Mitali Perkins' Fire Escape. By the way, I hope you read A. Fortis's interview of Sherman Alexie (source of the "tribes" reference) at Finding Wonderland; it's a gem.

Nominations for the Children's and YA Bloggers' Literary Awards (the Cybils) close today. Go forth and nominate.

Karen MacPherson lists books for reluctant readers (apparently middle-school boys, to judge by her choices) at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Don't miss the first round of bidding at Robert's Snow, the online charity art auction at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Yes, "Finding Wonderland" makes life better.

Thanks for all the links.

You're welcome, Jules. I always enjoy a good link.

I grew up hating to read. Now I write action-adventures & mysteries especially for boys 8 - 13, who also may not like to read.

NEWSPAPER CAPER, TERROR AT WOLF LAKE, NORTH WOODS POACHERS, MOUNTAIN CABIN MYSTERY, BIG RIG RUSTLERS, SECRET OF ABBOTT'S CAVE & LEGEND OF THE WHITE WOLF, are compared by readers and reviewers to Tom Sawyer, The Hardy Boys, Huck Finn, Nancy Drew, Tom Swift, Scooby-Doo, Lemony Snicket, and adventure author Jack London.

My blog, Books for Boys, ranks in the top 5 on Yahoo and the top 20 on Google and you can find it at There you will also find links to my author's web site and another blog with 50 pages of reviews.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thank you,

Max Elliot Anderson
