Twitter and Facebook are great places to obtain news, depending on who you follow/friend. In the last couple of days, I have learned all the following:
- Laura Ingalls Wilder and her daughter Rose collaborated on the Little House books; the true story behind the making of these books is nearly as interesting as the books.
- Those rumors about the demise of reading may have been great exaggerated.
- Some schools are moving toward choice with regards to reading. I have mixed feelings about this because I think I have been led to great books I might not have chosen on my own by my teachers, and I flatter myself I’ve done the same for some of my students.
- The Decatur Book Festival is next weekend! I usually don’t hear about it until it’s passed me by. I must go this time! By the way, the Decatur Book Festival is on Twitter and Facebook. (P.S. Diana Gabaldon is going to be there. I love her.)
