Both A Chair, A Fireplace & a Tea Cozy and Kids Lit recently featured the blog I'm a Reading Fool. I read a little bit about the blog, took a look at the picture of the blogger, and shouted, "Eureka! I know her!"
After doing a little checking, it turns out I do know her. When I mention having made a trip to the library here at Original Content, there's a 50-50 chance that I'm talking about I'm a Reading Fool's place of employment.
What was the real tipoff? I'm a Reading Fool read Life As We Knew It in November. I read it at the beginning of November. It was the first Cybils nominee I read. I got the book from I'm a Reading Fool. It had just been purchased by her library, and one of the other librarians called her at home to see if she'd let me take it before she had a chance to read it. So I ended up reading it first.
This is serious detective work we're talking here.
Here's what's exciting about this: Now I know a kidlitblogger here in the real carbon-based world. When I talk about my kidlit buddies with my family, they treat me like some kind of pathetic cybergeek who lives in her mother's basement. Hey, not anymore.
