105 Ways to Give a Book

Booklights and Whining

Today at Booklights I’m sharing reading readiness games to play with your preschooler. Easy activities — not the ones involving macaroni, wooden dowels, and a glue gun. Though if you have a suggestion for using those three items, it can be today’s bonus feature.

I’m not in the mood to write much more, and I do want to limit my computer time today. I spent too much time online yesterday. It was actually kind of helpful that Twitter was down this morning. I know, crazy talk. But my Facebook page is getting hit with everyone’s Tweets — especially with all the authors heading to SCBWI. I’m thinking if folks are going update Twitter every twenty minutes, perhaps the connection to Facebook could be turned off. Maybe it’s just me. I am a little tired and cranky.

A media fast is good for one's soul every once in a while. :)

You're describing my reason for not getting involved with Twitter. Or even Facebook, for that matter. I know people rave about them for marketing, but I'm already so distracted from my work with the blogs and listservs I follow. There's got to come a tipping point where you're spending more time networking than you are creating the work you're networking about.

At least with an old-fashioned blog, a writer has an opportunity to practice writing mini-essays. I really don't think I could say anything meaningful in 140 characters. People would get sick of me very fast.
