Happy New Year!

I am very excited to welcome in the year 2013. The number 13 is a lucky number in viking culture and I feel this year is going to be a really great year. I was on a little bit of a Winter Holiday blogging break for the past couple of weeks, but it’s great to be back with many many happy reading occasions to look forward to. Though I’ve been a bit absent here, I can assure you I’ve been busy as anything jumping into some of my favorite books both old and new alike.

Here’s a bit of what I’m looking forward to this year:

  • Jumping into some really great books with you and yours.
  • The Family Book Festival coming right here to Jump into a Book. It will be a month of the most book fun you’ve had in a long time.
  • February 14th is Give A Book Away Day.
  • Another 30 book Dr. Seuss Giveaway  plus other fun giveaways throughout the year too. We love putting great books in the hands of great readers.
  • I’ll be publishing two more books in the Ultimate Guide Series. Here’s a clue or two; if you like deserts and Peter Pan..you’ll LOVE these upcoming books 🙂 More details to come very very soon.
  • App-y hour continues. If you are sure what that is, on Fridays we review awesome (and sometimes free) book apps for kids.

  • Author visits (you never know WHO will show up!)
  • And even more ways for us to connect together through our love of reading and play.
