Morning Meanderings… Children and YA categories continue to grow in book sales!
Morning all! Thursday already? Why oh why is my summer flying by? The days are full and fast…. before I know it, Friday will be here and I leave for Wisconsin for the Mudruckus with two awesome daring friends. BUT – more on that tomorrow.
I slept well last night and while that may not seem like a big deal, it is. Mater (new dog) is like that having a baby in the house – sometimes at night he cries, and like a new mom – even if he does not cry from his space in the entryway… I listen for it. This morning I woke up surprised to see it was 6:30 am and I had woke up on my own – without noise or distraction. Usually I have been getting up between 5 and 5:30 am.
Now with coffee cup – I am eager to share that I just read on Shelf Awareness that Childrens/Middle Grade YA reads have continues to grow in sales all year…. some months in triple digits. That excites me so much. The future of books and reading will be in the next generations hands and I am always excited to see kids with books. YAY to our authors who are writing the books that are keeping these kids engaged and wanting to read.
This morning I have work- I am biking in for the third day this week. Later I have dinner with friends and then a group of us are going to the movie Hope Springs! I am excited about a full day and a fun evening.
My reading is still slow since July… so much going on in life and in my weekends but it is good stuff and I know once life slows down again my nose will again be in a book daily.
I hope your Thursday is wonderful! Any fun plans for the weekend?
