  38. Hey, where'd my comment and link go? I thought I put it up this morning before I left . . . I wonder if I had another comment window open and somewhere there's a puzzled blogger wondering why I posted that!

    Well, here's mine, and I also did a post for Banned Books week on Monday.

  40. I couldn't pick one--so the list of four is on my blog at the link below. Several of these are ones I had been meaning to read for months and finally got around to and loved.

    (P.S. I'm a teacher trying to get into blogging with my students. If your blog is focused on YA lit leave a comment, so that I can add you to my blog roll and share with my students!)
