Happy Sunday everyone! I *really* need to start planning for the 24 Hour Read-a-thon. I'd love to get a happy little post (do you think it will be a *little* post?) about which books I want to read for the read-a-thon.
Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon is coming up soon. October 24th. Will you be participating?
Nominations are open for the Cybils. They'll remain open through October 15th.

Going Bovine by Libba Bray (need to get back to this one, but not an immediate, immediate priority)
