Things are Kind of Slow Right Now


It's summer so I'm not doing any school presentations, and kidlit conference season appears to be over. So I don't have much to write about these days. That's how I'm explaining and excusing this entry.

You see, yesterday I was at the grocery store, one of those big ones with a book section. It had been recently renovated and as grocery store book sections go, it was quite nice. Anyway, there, on an end display of picture books, what did I see but The Gas We Pass: The Story of Farts by Shinta Cho. Oh, how I wish we knew how to insert graphics into this blog so I could show you the elephant butt on the cover!

The title is both lyrical and descriptive. The book is exactly what it says it is...The Story of Farts. I stood there next to my shopping cart with my mouth open and read the whole thing. As a mom, I would have been hesitant to make this book available to my kids because once I had they would have taken it as absolute permission to talk the talk and...uh, walk the walk, so to speak. As a reader, I have to say I know plenty of adults who would love this book. Yeah, for its factual information. That's right.

The game has a lot of rf gold, as long as you join to play this game you will get
them. you should try your best to earn as much rf online gold as you can, so you are strong and no one can
fight you. you can get a lot of rf money in the game, so many other players want to play with you together. As long as you have the rf cp you will be strong and you can go to kill the monsters to upgrade alone. i like the cheap rf gold very much.
