  1. These are great books for young children. At age 4 we read to my granddaughter all the time. She loves when its story time. Take time and read with your kids it will make you both happy.

  2. Your teen readers might be interested in a free iPod Touch giveaway. I’ve recently posted the contest on my wordpress blog (just click my name and it’ll probably take you there).

    Also, for Christmas this year, my husband was going to buy me a Kindle, but he decided not to. Why? Because he wasn’t sure which eBook reader is the best. I’d love to get a librarian’s advice on this. Would you think about doing a post on iPod Kindle vs. B&N’s reader vs. other mediums for eBook reading? I’d like to hear a professional opinion. Thanks.
