Actor Robert Pattinson appeared recently at Orland Square Mall south of Chicago.  Read about his adventures in this article.

Here’s another story about fans  who were turned away from the event.

Would you have waited overnight for a chance to meet Pattinson?  Would you be upset if you were turned away?

Now that Breaking Dawn has finally debuted, what do you think?  Have you finished reading it yet?  How long did it take? Is it predictable?  Shocking?  What do you think of the ending?  Did you love it?  Hate it?

Louise Rennison’s popular character, Georgia Nicolson, is getting her own movie.  It’s based on the book Angus Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging, but the movie is called Angus Thongs and Perfect Snogging.  What’s up with the title change?  Anyway, here’s the official website.

What’s the best book published for teens this year?  The purpose of the Printz Award is to honor that book.
But how do you choose the BEST book?  Is it your favorite book?  The one that was the most fun to read?  The one with the best writing?  How do you know if a book is well-written?

I stuggle with questions like these.  I’ve read several good books this year that I liked a lot, but there isn’t one that I can say is BETTER than the others.
How do YOU pick the best book?
