Looking For Something I Haven't Already Heard About

Colleen Mondor's new Bookslut in Training column is up at the December issue of Bookslut. She also has a feature article this issue on nonfiction for kids called Curious Minds.

I continue to read Bookslut's blog and have started trying to find time to browse through the magazine because I think Bookslut doesn't engage in what I've seen called gang reviewing. I see books and articles mentioned there that I don't see elsewhere. (At least, not in the circles I frequent.)

Colleen's column this month is a case in point. While she talks about a number of books that could be said to be well covered by the gang (The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, for instance) she also discusses Bad Monkeys, which wasn't published as YA and which Colleen describes as "only for the high school crowd." She also has good things to say about Indigara, a YA I missed when Wands and Worlds mentioned it back in September.

I knew the dofus kamas so I always try my best to earn them more and more to make myself strong. I have never played the game before, at the beginning I did not know what is so I went to kill the monsters with the kamas that I earned with myself in the game. I will duty bound to a friend to help brush the dofus gold together with my friends. I spend a good relationship is then fly to tears. If my levels are very high, I can go to buy dofus kamas more and more and I will not depend on my friends to help me to earn them. I get some cheap kamas as the gifts to encourage me.
