For Teenage Girls who Read

If there's a teenage girl in your life who loves to read, and also loves MySpace, point her towards the website readergirlz.

October looks like a fabulous month on the site. YALSA (the American Library Association's group for Young Adult Librarians), has joined with readergirlz to present a month long experience to celebrate Teen Read Week. The readergirlz divas will be hosting 31 authors for 31 days in chats on the group forum. There will be a different YA author each evening in October at 5 PM PST/8 PM EST.

Meg Cabot kicks it off on Oct. 1. Other authors include Nikki Grimes, Chris Crutcher, Ann Brashares, and Lisa Yee. Bestselling vampire author Stephenie Meyer will end the series for Halloween, on October 31.

Check out the website for complete details. Looks fabulous for teenage readers!

You're welcome! I emailed all the librarians on FictionL, and left a note for my teen librarian, since I won't see him until Tuesday.

Good luck! It looks fabulous.
