Good Things Happen When You Read Blogs

July 16, 2015

I read blogs – blogs about children’s books and the writing life. I find them interesting and informative. Blogs stimulate ideas and motivate me. They’re filled with writing tips, book recommendations, book reviews, illustrator studio tours, and plain good advice.

Contests and giveaways are an added treat offered by many of the blogs. I’m a sucker for these. Each time I’m a winner, I’m like a kid at Christmas, waiting to tear open my gift when it arrives. Here are a few of the things I’ve won recently.

Once I read the books, I pay it forward – libraries, schools, friends … Although, there a few special books I’ve kept for my home library.

Besides the blogs listed on my blog page, here are a few more of my favorites. If you have more suggestions, I’d love to hear them.
