– Young reader’s medal effort – AdelaideNow
A eight-year-old boy in Adelaide has read 1000 books since February 2007 as part of South Australia’s Premier’s Reading Challenge. It is reported that he averages about 4 books a day.
– Hottest Facebook Group for Librarians
A very useful list of groups that are relevant to librarians. Am in some of the groups since I joined Facebook not too long ago. If you’re on Facebook, add me as a friend.
– BookJetty goes global
One of my favorite tools online is BookJetty as it allows me search for books on Amazon and see if we have it available in our catalogue. Now, BookJetty has expanded to more than 300 other libraries around the world. There is also the social networking part where you can share the books you have read with others. And also post reviews. Just waiting for a Facebook app. 🙂
