The Bibliovore Has Even More to Say

So I was hanging out at a table last night, imbibing beverages liberally, and I mentioned an idea I had for a blog name: Kid Tested, Librarian Approved. The chorus of, "Get that blog name right now before somebody else does!" darn near deafened me. But I thought, "I have a blog! What do I need a new one for?"

Then I realized--when I branched out into picture books, I started posting at two ends of a spectrum. There are people reading this blog who probably don't want to see YA reviews but they do like the picture book reviews, and vice versa. It's not your fault I can't make up my mind.

So with that in mind, I decided to create Kid Tested, Librarian Approved. That blog will focus on picture book and early reader news and reviews, and Confessions of a Bibliovore will continue with the MG/YA news and reviews.

Oh, and further conference news and unflattering pictures coming soon!

Good conference yields good ideas!

When one of the speakers mentioned "The Lackluster Librarian" I thought that would be a good blog title too... for something, not necessarily a book blog.;)

The joys of blog names and getting them while they're hot!

That is a GREAT idea/name! :)
I will definitely be checking in on that one. It was fun hanging out with you. N & I probably stayed in Powell's for another hour (or 2) after you had already gone!!! If Powell's was a jacuzzi, we'd be shriveled prunes!
P.S. I posted 2 cute pics of you on Bees Knees Reads

Great name idea for a new blog with a specific focus!
Fun to meet you in Portland.
All best,
