I’m honored to be up today at Beatrice.com, with a little essay about sexism in “traditional” children’s books.Â Beatrice was one of the first lit-blogs I ever read regularly, and Ron Hogan is one of those people who make the world run.Â Illuminati kinda guy. No joke.
One of my favorite people let me hijack her site! If you don’t know Lizzie Skurnick, You gotta!
Laini Taylor, whose work and spirit are a total inspiration to me, welcomes me for the day, over at her blog!
I’m chugging a cold one and chatting it up over at BGB today. I absolutely adore this locally-run (but nationally read) litblog!Â Come visit?
Come roast me up, and win a free signed copy of Up and Down the Scratchy Mountains!
Amy (who is just about the hottest, smartest, Jewish-est writer I know) helps me ask the citizens of blogistan:Â What was your favorite book as a kid?
In answering the question herself, she confesses a deep and abiding love for Dorrie the Little Witch!
But what was YOUR favorite book as a kid?Â Blog it up, people!
So I want to take aÂ second to say that of course my life is still my insane life– the boys and I went to Charleston on Wednesday, and found it lovely and dramatically wind-swept. There were “little boats” and “BIG WATER” (says Mose) and we all slept in one giant hotel bed and I did not get a lot of rest.
Yes, I promise I have not gotten so book-obsessed I’ve forgotten to feed my kids, or read other people’s books, or eat tacos on a daily basis.Â I read and loved the Willoughbys, and I read and didn’t love Peeled nearly as much.Â Also,Â 7 Imp’s Yolen interview rocked my world, andÂ I’m currently obsessed with Fictionaut. The stuff of life.
But all that aside, for a little while it mostly *is*Â ALL ABOUT MY BOOK, because Up and Down the Scratchy Mountains comes out on Tuesday!
To that end, I’ll be up all week at the Class of 2k8, embarassing myself with stories about elementary school and the like. And I’d really really appreciate if you could pop on over, orÂ maybe even link to anything you find interesting.
And I’ll also be BLOG-TOURING– visiting blogs around the web all week long. PLEASE STOP BY!
Today I’ll be lolling about with Amy Guth.
Monday I’ll be hangingÂ with the fabulous Longstockings.
Tuesday I’ll be getting Roasted!
Wednesday I’ll be drinking a beer with Baby Got Books.
Thursday, Laini Taylor is dying my hair.
Friday I’m chatting nonstop with Lizzie Skurnick.
And next week? Well, you’ll have to wait until NEXT WEEK to find out about all of that.
And eventually, I’ll get back to pictures of babies and general ranting.
