Oh -- It's nonfiction Monday again? How time flies when you are going out of your mind.
I don't have a new book ready to review
So I suggest you wander over to the I.N.K blog (Interesting Nonfiction for Kids) and see what that group of nonfiction writers is talking about today. Ah, Jennifer Armstrong is talking about nonfiction books that seem to be long lists of things -- like the Guinness Book of World Records. That's one of the most checked-out books in our library. She points out how lists of things are often the backbone of many nonfiction books. (just how many things do live under a rock or log?)
As for me, I'm busy packing for my trip to Vermont College tomorrow.
I'll try to post reports from there -- if I can find an internet connection and if I don't fall asleep too quickly after long days of classes and discussions. (I'm taking my bathing suit, but don't really expect to have time to use it.)
