Check out these sites!

Keeping to the "author" theme, these sites allow students to get to know the writer! They can communicate with her/him and learn what's coming next in their favorite series!

For the same reason we show booktalks and book fair videos this chat between a student and author appeals to young readers.

Quotes for book lovers!!!

More books by my favorite authors!!!

BookBox: embed book widget, share book list

When students find they like a book, they are very willing to try others by the same author. Series are so popular with kids because they already know they like the story. This would be a way to share books they may not know by authors they do.

Check out my books!

Students will be able to search my collection - books to which they have access - using tags. They can also look at the recommendation lists to find new books to read.
