Physical Books: Brian Selznick is back! Have you heard? Kaleidoscope publishes on September 21st and people are looking forward to this one! I love that my bookseller friend, Kathy, shares ARCs with me, and this is an interesting hand-off. This is a collection of short stories with two main characters who connect through travels, dreams, and strange places. I can’t tell you much without giving it away, but its 200+ pages will leave you thinking, that’s for sure. I’m sure my middle school and high school teacher friends will use the stories in classrooms around the globe.
I’m STILL reading The Firekeeper’s Daughter because I’m interrupted constantly with school work now. I still recommend this title to anyone who is interested.
Libro.fm: I’m going to listen to The Plot next. I put it off before, but now I’ll be driving more miles in the next few weeks, so time is on my side for once.
It’s Monday! What are YOU reading?

I’ve never read anything by Brian Selznick, even though I know tons of people adore his books—Kaleidoscope sounds like a great new book of his. And I’ve heard great things about The Firekeeper’s Daughter and The Plot—they both sound great as well. Thanks so much for the great post, and good luck with school and all the driving you have to do!

How wonderful for you to have a copy of Kaleidoscope! For Christmas one year I got my partner a copy of Brian Selznick’s first book because it is about the development of moving pictures and he is a filmmaker. I hope you find time to just sit and read The Firekeeper’s Daughter. It is one of the best books I’ve read this year.
