1) The outpouring of support of Laurie Halse Anderson’s SPEAK. I hadn’t read it last Sunday but I have now. I can only conclude either I read a different book or that man is a few sandwiches short of a picnic.
2) It’s the NATIONAL BOOK FESTIVAL ON THE MALL tomorrow. Yay for celebrating books and not banning them.
3) Shannon Hale’s baby blog. Oh my, I usually love Shannon Hale’s blog, but at the moment she is blogging about being pregnant with twins and it’s just brilliant – like Jon and Kate Plus 8 before it became car crash TV – I especially like her post of fat babies having had quite a chunky monkey baby myself. She’s also done some great posts on book banning (if fat babies are not your thing).
4)A new book from Diana Peterfreund! It’s an adaptation of the movie Morning Glory, which looks great – both book and film.
5) Signing up for a SCBWI conference.
Well okay that last one is making me happy and terrified. Happy is winning right now.
What’s making you Happy this Friday!
