Wednesday Wanderings - 1/21/09

Wednesday Wanderings 
"I wander around the blog and bring you what I find."

Last week's Wednesday Wanderings was all about the Sydney Taylor Awards blog tour.  You can see the entire tour schedule here.  The tour is still going on and will make a stop here tomorrow as I interview illustrator Natascia Ugliano.  Make sure you come back and hear what she has to say.


Presenting Lenore is having an awesome giveaway!  Enter to win 8+ YA books from Penguin.  5 are guaranteed 2009 titles.  You can see some of them on her blog.  You have until 2/8 to enter.

Don't forget about Reviewer X's giveaway of Laurie Halse Anderson's Wintergirls.  Contest ends 1/24

Over at Bookdads, they are giving away a copy of Savvy by Ingrid Law.  This is one I've been wanting to read.  You can enter until 2/1.

New Additions to Blogs

I am an avid reader of Maw Books blog.  Just this week she started a new addition to her blog: Reader Spotlight.  Here is what she has to say: 
Each week I’ll be highlighting a different reader/blogger/commenter here on my blog! I have loved all the comments I receive on my blog and this is my way of getting to know each of you better! No rhyme or reason as to when I’ll post these. Hopefully, once a week, if I can manage it. I hope you enjoy these Reader Spotlights!
This week we are introduced to Jenn.  I hope you will hop on over and meet her as well.

New Blogs

I posted about this yesterday, but in case you missed it, check out this new blog: Connecting2Give started by my new friend Gwynne whom I met through Twitter.

What did you "wander" upon this week?  Please share in the comments.
