Generate Your Own Glitter Graphics @ - Image hosted by

A new book club began this week at Park View School and Golf Middle School. 7th and 8th graders are grabbing their lunch and meeting in their school library during lunch and recess. Bring a book that you want to recommend/discuss to the club. I will continue to bring treats and some of my favorite books from MGPL to discuss, too! Famished for Fiction will meet once a week until Winter Break. Stay tuned for updates, book recommendations, pictures, and news on upcoming dates for Famished for Fiction in 2008!

Naruto is Changing

They already made the switch in Japan, and soon American Naruto fans will notice a change in their favorite character. Viz Media is publishing 3 new volumes of Naruto for the last four months of the year. By December 2007, volume 27 will be released and a big change will appear beginning in 2008. In the next installment of graphic novels, Naruto will be "taller, older, and wiser" according to Viz Media. Naruto will suddenly be two and a half years older.

More information will be available in the January issue of Shonen Jump Magazine--which will be available in the Teen Zone in early December.
