What was I thinking. I am disappointed that One For the Murphys did not receive accolades.

I enjoy following your reviews. I'm currently reading Three Times Lucky and am a tad disappointed that it did not receive a Newbery honor.

Do you have any thoughts/feelings about those selected?
I'm stopping by to say how much I like your review of The Summer of Gypsy Moths. I finished this book a few hours ago.

My only quarrel is that the ending seemed to arrive abruptly, and it seems the author wants to put a big red bow on the present.

The reason for the perceived strange rating on "The Family Tree" book is because you don't see the ratings of private library members that have rated the book.
I'm intrigued by your email address name. Christopher Paul Curtis is one of my favorite YA authors and Bud, Not Buddy is one of my favorite of his books.
Hi Richie,
As an educator and school librarian, I'm a regular reader of your reviews and find them very helpful. I'm wondering if I could pick your brains and ask your advice about great novel read-alouds for two age groups:
Grade 5-6 and Grades 7-8. If you have any time to respond I'd be grateful.
Hi Richie, Good to see you here!
I saw your review of "The Best and Hardest Thing" where you talked about unprotected sex and the dangers of pregnancy. I thought you might appreciate this fact: all things being equal, the chances of a single act of unprotected intercourse resulting in pregnancy is actually fairly low, only about 1 and 12. If it was a rape, the chances drop to a mere 1 in 50. These odds are much better than I would have thought, but given what pregnancy does to a person, I still don't think it's worth playing Russian Roulette over.
Hi -- I've seen your reviews on alsc-l; good to see you here, too.
W0W! How do you find the time to catalog your books? You have a very interesting collection. :)
