Not the YA Connection
I’m tired of doing the YAC…. I like it, but it takes forever to do (at least two hours) and I don’t feel like doing it right now…. or possibly ever.
But I do have some bookish type news that I wanted to share today, so I’m going to do that instead.
1) Amazon Pulls MacMillan books!
Um yes, you read that right. Amazon pulled at the titles from MacMillan, which includes: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, St. Martins Press and Henry Holt. You can still order them from third parties but not directly from Amazon. Really Amazon?
You can see an article about the whole thing, Amazon Pulls Macmillan Books Over E-Book Price Disagreement.
Although I will admit, I for one, would not be willing to pay $15 for an e-book. However, it was a pretty childish move on Amazon’s part to pull the books.
2) I’m a judge for the SMOOCHIES!
It’s an award… more information on that coming up! Super excited to be a part of this!
3) TeenReads.com is co-hosting the annual Children’s Choice Book Awards!
Teenreads.com is again collaborating with the Children’s Book Council (CBC) on the 2010 Teen Choice Book of the Year, offering teens an opportunity to share their five favorite books of 2009. The five titles that receive the most votes will serve as the finalists for the CBC’s 2010 Teen Choice Book of the Year.
Get your vote on!
4) Win $1000
Are you a dreamer…. of awesome DREAMS?
