Books (and More) on Twitter

Update 9/20: I'm still on Twitter; please visit! I took down the Twitter feed here on the blog to reduce clutter. 

In the far right-hand column of this blog is a feed called Twitter Updates. I use Twitter to call readers' attention to book reviews and literary essays at other publications; to point out other interesting but possibly non-book-related links; and to ask questions here and there. 

While some of my tweets (or, Twitter entries) are about children's books, a good many are not. So, there's a little but not a whole lot of overlap with the blog, although I hope both endeavors cover books and how they fit into today's world, at least to a tiny degree.

Recent articles I've pointed out via Twitter are Alice Sebold's Atlantic essay about literary prizes, a New York Times mention of author/photographer Seymour Simon's wedding, and a piece on the Bronx's Museum of Trees. (I'm all for Museums of Trees, aren't you?)

Please visit at


Happy reading on this rainy Tuesday.

I'm still working on the usefulness of Twitter. Thank you for sharing the way it works for you.
I'm debnance, though I tweet about once a year.

Hi, Deb. Thanks for checking in. I really enjoy Twitter, which lets me branch out a bit!
