Yesterday was Rock the Drop through ReaderGirlz and Figment. ReaderGirlz started Rock the Drop to honor Support Teen Literature Day.
What's Support Teen Literature Day you ask? It's when librarians all across the country host events in their
library or through their web site to raise awareness among the general public that young
adult literature is a vibrant, growing genre with much to offer today's
teens. Support Teen Literature Day also seeks to showcase some
award-winning authors and books in the genre as well as highlight
librarians' expertise in connecting teens with books and other reading
So yesterday I Rocked the Drop.
I dropped my book at my local Safeway store:
And I dropped John Green's The Fault in Our Stars at my local Starbucks:
The Safeway is located near a middle school, the Starbucks near a high school. I hope they found good homes.
Consider Rocking the Drop or doing something else to honor Support Teen Literature Day next year.

Now for the Friday Scribbles:
Random Pandora Song from the Young the Giant Channel: Yellow by Coldplay
Book of the Week: Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhha Lai. My first book in verse. It's about a girls move (true story) from wartime Vietnam to America. I'm really liking it.
Redbox of the Week: 50/50 with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen. Nothing short of awesome.
