The Week in Books, or Leave Me Alone, I'm Reading!
Urban Farmer

Reading Fest

48hbc Pam Coughlan, who blogs at MotherReader, sponsors a read-a-thon each June, in which participants read and blog about as many children's books as they can in a 48-hour period. You'll get many reading suggestions from all those involved just by keeping up with the reviews. At last count 107 people were signed up and burying their noses in books!

See the starting-lineup list at MotherReader, and click on the individual blog titles to follow the action. I'll be sitting in the grandstand, rooting everyone on.

Many of my picks are Children's Books, others are devoted to parents. Plus, I've got great contests and exclusive interviews, such as this one with Mo Willems:

I hope you will stop by!

What a wonderful idea, thank you for sharing!
