Young Readers Week and This Week at Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words

Tuesday is National Young Readers Day

How many of you were read to as children? Then kept reading on yourself, in libraries, in beds, where ever you could lose yourself in your story. Still remember those stories and even perhaps have those torn and well worn books to this day?  Tuesday is National Young Readers Day and I will be blogging about favorite and popular children’s stories, childhood reading and the impact I feel it has into adulthood.  Have a favorite childhood book as a kid?  Let me know, I’d love to hear from you.

November’s First Line Quiz Starts Next Week

Yes, I let it slide a week.  I finished gathering all my first lines for the quiz.  It’s 14 first lines from current books and not so current novels.  Some might be easy, others will be some you might have to work for.   How I loved compiling this list!  In fact, this list will come with a prize attached.  The winner will  receive a Amazon gift card but its still not the big Quiz.  That will happen in December.

Now here is our schedule for the week, baring any RL events or disruptions like book releases being pushed back (hey, it happens more than you think):
