Send Us Your Photos!

Hi Greece!

We see you, New Zealand.

Senegal, you rock our socks!

One of the great things about a blog about YA books is that it brings together readers from all over the world. We appreciate our readers and love that they come from many, many countries and all parts of the U.S. and Canada. We want to see what YA looks like where you are. Where do you buy your Libba Brays and Suzanne Collins? What does the library that keeps you stocked with John Green and Walter Dean Myers look like? We really want to know!

So, we're putting out a call for pictures. From everyone. Bookstores, libraries, mailboxes. Where do you get your YA books? Take a picture and send it to us at Tell us the location of your picture and your initials, only. Please, no people facing the camera or too-detailed location info, in order to be as safe as possible.

We will feature these photos in a series of upcoming posts, so you can see where your fellow YAHighway readers around the world get their YA fix. Start snapping!

  1. So for clarification, we do or don't want people in the pics?

    And we did too mention Lily's contest. *nose in air*

  2. The back of someone's head away off in the distance is okay. Or a side profile. Just don't want to post a picture of someone who has no idea they were in a photo. If it's *you* (the person taking the photo), I don't have so much of a problem with it.

    When in doubt, keep the people out.

  5. Kate- You did. I noticed. I was very confused with the second email.
