One thing 100 Scope Notes is not known for is the roundup. Typically, I like to stick to an uncompromising “one topic, one post” mentality. But as a wise man once said, “I make my own rules… and I break ’em all”. So let’s get down to business.
- Goodreads. It’s blowing up lately as evidenced by recent posts by children’s lit bloggers Wizards Wireless and Kids Lit. I’m also a lover and user of the only social network that matters (well, for those that prefer cardigans at least). So click on the Goodreads logo and we can be friends.
- Controversy continues to surround the film version of “Where the Wild Things Are“. Earlier this week I posted a clip that may or may not have been from the movie. Now it looks like the future of the Spike Jonze directed project is getting cloudier, according to this New York Magazine article.
- RIF still needs help. The program that helps bring free books to students is on the chopping block. Visit the Reading is Fundamental website to help keep RIF alive. They have a simple template for sending a message to your legislators.
- Reviews are in for “The Spiderwick Chronicles” movie. The verdict? Not too shabby, not to un-shabby. Head on over to Read Roger, who has posted the very well done Horn Book review of the film.
