rgz Newsflash: Change is in the Air!

Change is in the air! Can you feel it?

We at readergirlz are assessing and redirecting. Active divas Micol, Melissa, and I have decided on a few tweaks as we rewrite and prepare for our own book releases. Micol's is tomorrow! Family premieres tomorrow! 

Back to the point. Here's what you can look forward to:

* The blog will be your point of reference for Cover Stories, industry newsflashes, HOST reports from across the country, as well as Street Team, SALON, and Diva reviews of great YA lit.

* Like our Facebook page to stay up to the the minute on all things rgz. We hope to pull awesome posts from the wall as blog posts! So keep us informed of what you are doing/reading, and we'll let you know if everyone's headed to Twitter for a chat!

* Watch for at least two literacy initiatives a year, like the massively successful Rock the Drop! 

So that's the scoop for your rgz 4.0. We are psyched and hope you are as well. Drop any questions or thoughts in the comments then read, reflect, and reach out!
