Thanks, postergirlz! This is an awesome collection. Aren't they great picks for The Adoration of Jenna Fox?

Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac by Gabrielle Zevin
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
Graceling by Kristin Cashore

Not Quite What I was Planning: Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure
Walden by Henry David Thoreau

Leave your comments for these authors as well. They may just drop in. Well, the ones still with us. :~) And they are being invited to rgz LIVE! this month. (Most likely still at the rgz MySpace group forum.) Woohoo!

If Mary Shelley were to hang out at our local haunt, I fear I may monopolize the conversation.

Beth Kephart said...

My goodness, Little Willow. What would you ask her? And what would you imagine her saying?

And what do you imagine Mr. Thoreau would want to say (if only you would give him room to say it)?

Thank you, all, for the privilege of being part of that electronic haunt this month.

Awesome slideshow! I love the picks for March.

Justina Chen said...

Great slideshow!! I'm so thrilled about this month's recommended reads. Undercover, I love Undercover.

Thank you, postergirlz! This is a rocking list!

Beth, would you share the genesis for Undercover?

Lorie Ann Grover said...

And everyone knows Miss Erin is in the Six-Word Memoirs, right?

Kristin Cashore said...

Oh my goodness! What fun to see my book in a maze-slideshow-Rubik's cube thingamagig!

I have a feeling this is the last time I'll ever be on a list with Mary Shelley and Henry David Thoreau.

Thanks so much for including me! Now I have some great new titles for my own TBR list! :o)

Little Willow said...

Go, Miss Erin! I'm so happy for her. Erin, I believe you've been in print before, but is this the first time you've been published in something this widely released?

Hi Kristin! Glad to see you here! I think Shelley would make an excellent readergirl, and Thoreau, a readerboy. ;-)

hmm I haven't heard of some of those.

I really loved frankenstein and Gabrielle Zevin's Elsewhere.

I shall have to check those others out.
Not quit what I was planning sounds really good, even if it is non-fiction which I don't really read.

Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac is a really great read. This is a Reading Olympic book (Montgomery County, PA) and every student loves it!
