This Week’s Peanut Gallery


These Peanut Gallery posts are where we put up whatever we’ve found around the web responding to the latest BOB news. Be sure to let us know in the comments if we’ve missed yours and we will add it in here.


Battle Commander Monica pitched the BoB over at the Nerdy Book Club.

Along with contemplating the Undead Poll  Brandy announced her general predictions here.

At the Mock BoB being held by Tales from a Loud Librarian, one student passionately defended her contender and then there are those creating awesome shields for their books. 

More about gaming BOB  (and what the chances are) with Stats 101 with Sondy from Jen.

The Card Catalog looks at the judges and considers the contenders.

Sara’s getting ready.

  • becca_donnelly Can’t keep the silly grin off my face – must be almost time for#sljbob. Can’t wait for Vaunda Nelson to kick it off.
  • sralph31 Hokey Pokey confused me at first, but now I’m enjoying it. The world building is expertly done and it isn’t too long. Excited for @SLJsBoB
  • TaylorLibrarian  I loved both Eleanor & Park and Rose Under Fire. I can’t choose.
