Children’s Digital Sees Record Growth in May While Overall eBook Growth Slows Down – So, what does this mean for libraries? It seems like libraries can keep up with eBook demand (if they’re not already protesting the privacy issues related to eBooks.) I know my public library system has very few eBooks for kids. And I’m not sure how I feel about making books more interactive. For me, reading is more about the story and writing – will interactivity take away from that? Or am I just being old-fashioned?

Self-published e-book author: ‘Most of my months are six-figure months’

– This is a dream of mine. Not necessarily to have 6-figure months, but just to make some money from my writing. Now, I just need to find the time to write.

Back to School Special: Rocking the New Year! – This is probably my favorite librarian blog out there. Just go read it. All of it.
Library as Makerspace: Creating and Nurturing Communities of Teen Writers – Another one of my favorite librarian blogs. I’ve been very interested in the idea of makerspaces in libraries. Creating a space for people to learn how to write and publish? Awesome.
