Today’s quote was sent to me by my Mom. She said it made her think of me 🙂
“I would sooner read a timetable or a catalog than nothing at all.”
W. Somerset Maugham (1874-1965) British novelist and playwright.

Now – April Reading Challenge!
Miss Cindy A.K.A. Cookiejarprincess over at the Bookworms Read More Books blog blogged about an April reading challenge she found on the Crazy Challenge Connection message board on goodreads.com. I’m too young to join the Challenge Group but I thought the challenge sounded fun and I am going to do it with Miss Cindy 🙂 ! The rules are –
Using the letters in the month of “April”, read a book that corresponds to each letter. You may use the first letter of the title, the first letter of the author’s first name, or the first letter of the author’s last name. As a bonus, read a book with “April” in the title, or a book with a main character named “April” (spelling does not have to be exact).
The challenge runs from April 1, 2012 through April 30, 2012.
Here is my list
A – “Annie and Me” by Sandi Hershenson
P – “Imagine Traveling to the Most Mysterious & Unusual Places!” by Praveeta
R – “Witch Sticker Ball” by R C Scott
I – “Instant Preplay” by Karl Fields
L – “Elliot Stone and the Mystery of the Summer Vacation Sea Monster” by L P Chase
Bonus – Don’t know yet 🙂

ONE MORE THING!
Donna Martin over at On the Write Track is participating in the Children’s Festival of Reading in Knox County Tennessee. It looks like an awesome event and I wish I could be there!
Ms. Martin has a booth at the festival and … well… I’ll let Ms. Martin tell you what she’s up to – (copied from her blog)
“I have been invited to have a booth where I am going to showcase any of my author friends who want to send me an autographed copy of their books or anything else they want to autograph…i.e. bookmarks, posters, pictures, etc. as giveaways. This is my way of saying thanks for the friendship and support I have felt since becoming a part of this wonderful writing community.”
I think festivals like this is a great way to get kids reading! Check it out HERE to see how to help and tell people about your book!
