Running with cpd23

Ah, more tools for my arsenal of research & social connection skills! I did my first 23Things a few years back (the impetus for starting this blog), and I know how much has changed in the social media spectrum since then.

Then, I was a high school librarian; now, I'm sorta-retired (not working, but no retirement pay coming yet), and busier than ever as an independent book reviewer (as guest on www.abookandahug.com - best books for babies, kids, tweens, and teens) and blogger (my own  http://BooksYALove.blogspot.com - recommending YA books beyond the bestsellers).

I remain active in the International Association of School Librarianship http://www.iasl-online.org/index.htm as Treasurer and continue to promote IASL's GiggleIT Project http://www.iasl-online.org/sla/giggleIT/ our free online student writing project, most recently at the Texas Library Association annual conference in April.

Looking forward to the 'new' Things which have appeared since my last go-round - Zotero, Prezi, etc. I'm finally on Twitter ( @BooksYALove) and am having such a good time following YA authors (some even follow me - eeep!) and movers/shakers in the library world - adding to that useful folks list will be great.
