Weekly Round Up (#40)

There’s nothing that ever says a shared link has to be from something published this last week. I like to share anything and everything that I have found interesting, even if it’s a few months, and quite possibly a few years old!

My feature consists of an average of 10 links that I fell in love with, or at least felt the need as an information specialist to share with you, whether you’re just an avid book reader or a librarian who hasn’t seen this particular article yet. Sometimes I post Youtube videos, and maybe I’ll one day be thematic! But for now, please enjoy the following links, and feel free to share your own in the comments down below.

It’s spring and although where I am we are enduring our “second winter” (click the link… I’ll wait)

While some of you might be enjoying your year-round warmness, some of us our still shoveling out our driveways. But for those of you who don’t have either, or if you’re doing the latter and are just looking for a reason to continue avoiding the extra inches that are slowly piling up, here are some links for you to enjoy 🙂

April is National Poetry Month, and although I’m not doing a poem-a-day like I did at the beginning, I’m hosting a small contest in my school library. The students are being put to the challenge of writing a micropoem or flash fiction in 140 characters or less. They are being encouraged to either Tweet it or write it out on a text bubble for the bulletin board. The students will be allowed to vote at the end of the month and winners will be announced on May 2nd, so I’m kind of excited to see what will come out of it.

What’s happened this week:

I’m still busying myself with lots of reading. Finishing up The Boy in the Black Suit (I’m really excited about this story), as well as dabbling in more picture books and continuing to read a few graphic novels for a few mini reviews!

How is your reading progress going? Making any headway?

  1. I completely forgot it was National Poetry Month!! Oh wait that makes sense because we’re reading poetry in English now. xD
