Welcome To The Book Jacket

Thanks for stopping by The Book Jacket.  After maintaining my blog, Karin's Book Nook, on Wordpress for over 2 years, I've decided to purchase a domain and start a website/blog on Blogger.  Eventually, I may merge the two sites, but for now, I'll keep them separate.  I will be cross-posting my reviews on both sites but I'll be sure to have unique posts on each as well. 

One of the reasons I'm using Blogger is it is easy to use and you can use a lot of the fun widgets and html code that Wordpress won't support.  Now I'll be able to highlight some of the Countdowns for the books I'm anxiously waiting for.

Add The Book Jacket to your Blogroll and RSS Reader or grab a button for your blog.  Contact me if you have any questions or if you want to work together on young adult book/author projects.  

The Chain 2010 Reading Challenge Information

The first official act of The Book Jacket is to host a Reading Challenge.  The Chain 2010 Reading Challenge.

This challenge is meant to challenge you to search out connections between the books you read in 2010.  There are two ways to go about this challenge.  1 - you can either make a list of books ahead of time that link together or 2 - you can create the list as you go throughout the year starting with one book and building your links from it.

Here is an example of a 4 Link Chain of books:

WHEN YOU REACH ME by Rebecca Stead involving time travel like...
THE POWER OF UN by Nancy Etchemendy involving a brother and sister like...
GREGOR THE OVERLANDER by Suzanne Collins involving people living underground like...
THE CITY OF EMBER by Jeannie DePrau

Check out the Challenge page for all the information.
