I really enjoyed this book and I have to admit the trailer has me interested in the movie.

"Reading is not an option” was his platform as YA literature ambassador, and he once told School Library Journal, “As a young man, I saw families prosper without reading, because there were always sufficient opportunities for willing workers who could follow simple instructions. This is no longer the case. Children who don’t read are, in the main, destined for lesser lives. I feel a deep sense of responsibility to change this."

Yesterday, Google announced an updated version of Google Drive. This will now include more image icons for your files. You know, in a kind of Pinterest type layout. Since the introduction of Pinterest a lot of websites seem to be going for a similar layout (including library websites). While, I’m not sure how important Pinterest really is in and of itself (I like it, I pin recipes and library type things, but I also tend to forget about for weeks at a time) it seems to have had quite the impact on how people and organizations design their own sites.

Libraries lift communities.

Days that start with a group wanting to donate a tablet for a summer reading prize are generally good days.
