So my good friend Hummingbird Heart* has started a series on her blog called Origin Stories where she and some friends write blog posts about books that inspired us as children and how they have shaped who we have become. Her first one is on Enders Game and her second is on Harriet The Spy. I'm going to write one (I have a couple of books in mind, don't worry - I'll link over when I write it) - there are so many books that have made me who I am today and so many things to say about those books! Anyway - if you want to read some beautiful love letters to/about books then click on over.
New York Public Library has a children's librarian who has done some great youtube book recommendations! Her astronaut recommendations are below:
I'm inspired! I might have to make some of my own!
The Huffington Post, of all places, made a great infographic about banned books week. I can only hope they start adding previous years in because it really is a fun visual!
*Not sure if you wanted real names on other people's blogs, HH, so I'm sticking with this!
