News items

Unfortunately owing to timing issues and being out all day Saturday, I found out too late that Midwestern Lodestar was hosting the 12th Carnival of Children's Literature, but do check it out - it's huge ! (And if you want to know what a "Carnival of Children's Literature" is, check out this explanation from Susan at Chicken Spaghetti). Fortunately, I already know that Jen Robinson of Jen Robinson's Book Page is hosting the next one, so the date's firmly in my "diary" to participate.

Talking of the lovely Jen, she's the latest Blogger to be interviewed by Jules and Eisha over at the fantastically named Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast (because why stop at Six ?!) Blog. I love "7-Imp" as it's affectionately known, though I've only recently started reading it (and must add them to my Blog roll !). Jules and Eisha also do a new series on a weekend called (at present) "Seven Good Things Before Monday", to which everyone's invited to contribute seven (or more, or less) good things that they've read, seen, heard, experienced - it's meant to be a celebration of the good things in life, to make up for all the dire news and grotty things that fill the newspapers and news stories.

And finally, Camille over at Book Moot linked to this FANTASTIC Hobbit House that was designed as a "fitting repository for a client's valuable collection of J. R. R. Tolkien manuscripts and artifacts" - I SO want to live here !! Do check the page out as the photos are awesome.
