Earlier this month, Little T received a package for winning a WWE reading contest that contained a damaged autographed poster. Tim and I tweeted to the Penguin Group’s twitter account and sent an email to see if we could get a replacement poster. After being bumped up through the chain of command, we were able to connect with someone who could send us a replacement poster. In fact, he sent us two of them and he asked if we’d be interested in reviewing some of their teen and young adult books.
Of course, we couldn’t say no to reviewing books. Our house is always full of books. The boys love to curl up with books while relaxing in our reading corner. Grandma Deb keeps a book with her at all times. Tim and I have a books and magazines on our desk for those moments when we just need to take a quick break. We have two bookcases overflowing with the boys books, two bookcases for our leisure read books, and two bookcases filled with our work related books.
Did you know that Penguin Group participates in We Give Books (part of First Book), a new digital initiative that enables anyone with access to the Internet to put books in the hands of children who don’t have them, simply by reading online. Our boys have already read a handful of books and are always thrilled when they finish a book online because they know another kid out there will get a book, too.
