I like how the Charlotte’s Library blog http://charlotteslibrary.blogspot.com has evolved the past four years. Her focus now is on middle grade science fiction and fantasy titles. I find something new every week in her wrap-ups. When students begin to self-identify and call themselves sci-fi readers or fantasy readers, I know that I can take them to Charlotte’s Library to explore a wide variety of titles.
Sometimes I feel like I’m cheating to rely on other librarians and bloggers so much to do my searching and find the books/ websites/ blogs that I need. Do you ever feel this way? It used to be soooooo much harder to locate enough materials to meet all the needs of my student readers. Now with sites like GoodReads, LibraryThing, Shelfari, TeenReads, blogs, and more, I can browse until I’m overloaded. Life is good. Link on!
