Guardian Unlimited Arts blog – books

With school out I’ve suddenly got around 70% of my mind freed up for other things. Now those other things have been sitting around waiting to get into my mind (things like organizing the NCTE Notable Children’s Books in the Language Arts convention session, reading more for Newbery, teaching my Rutgers online grad course in fairy tales, and some writing commitments) and I’m shifting over.  That takes a few days — days I use to potter about, leisurely look at other blogs, write more posts here, and just take things slower for a change.  Sweet.

So let me now point out a very fabulous blog: Guardian Unlimited: Arts blog – books.  To give you a taste,  here are three fascinating posts from the last couple of weeks; some of them have provoked a lot of comments and posts elsewhere.  Great stuff!
