Children’s Books from the Blog, Now on Amazon!
Hello everyone! Lanesha (or rather her online avatar, me) has created a Listmania! list on Amazon dedicated to the books discussed on this blog. I love the Listmania service on Amazon. It’s a great way to get information about people’s favorite books. There are a number of lists dedicated to Amazon user’s favorite books from when they were children, which is a testament, I think, to the power that these books have over us our entire lives. You can find the list here: http://www.amazon.com/lm/R35OO6ZBVVHY9N/ref=cm_pdp_lm_title_1, or search for “Lanesha Books: Children’s Historical Fiction” in the Listmania search box. I’ve only listed books that this blog has covered or discussed in-depth. I’m excited to see the list grow!
Keeping Lists and Virtual Book Shelves
The truth is, I love lists, and the internet is a great place to keep them. After many moves, I don’t have the luxury of seeing my favorite books on a physical shelf anymore. I’ve donated many of them or had to send them to Goodwill, so that my house doesn’t crumble or disappear into bookish dust. I also own a lot of new favorites in digital formats like Kindle. My daughter loves her Kindle, which is lucky since she lives in a 365 square foot walk-up in New York City (oh, to be young!).
I like to look back on what I’ve read on Goodreads. If you don’t have a shelf on Goodreads yet, I highly recommend it! You will find a wonderful community of readers in your favorite genre there, too.
