Youth Services Flash (9/28/2015)

Just a FLASH of insights, ideas and news for you …

The Chatter begins….

It is September…and the chatter is beginning about the potential books in the running for the Newbery and Caldecott …. May the best title WIN!

Someday my Printz will Come!

Can  you hear me singing?! This ‘seasonal blog’ has begun postings for 2016 Printz race….

Calling the Caldecott

And, yet…more chatter on the Caldecott…the Horn Book magazine’s seasonal blog is open and the ‘what I hope will be discussed by the committee has begun.
Any titles you, passionately want to see win?!

And, on the eBook front…..

Early Word quotes the NYT’s reporting that eBook sales are dropping off! A quirk? A trend? A minor hiccup? No ones knows! But, interesting to watch!
All my best…
