Hi again, everyone!
Thank you so much for your patience while I’ve been figuring out what to do next with this site. Since Be a Better Booktalker was hacked several months ago, I had to take some time to figure out if I was going to rebuild this site from scratch, and if so, how.
The site is going to start looking different over the next few days and weeks. I’m basically going to be copying / tweaking / fixing several years’ worth of content, so pages might be disappearing and reappearing while I work on them. My plan is to use the month of August (minus my vacation when I’ll be out of town) to work on this, so that by the time we’re officially in back-to-school mode the site will start looking and feeling “normal” again.
In the meantime, I’m still podcasting with Dan, Kevin, and Hawk over at the Temple of Bad podcast. Yeah, I know that listening to me talk about bad movies isn’t QUITE the same as listening to me talk about good books, but it’s entertaining in a different way! We came back from our hiatus to discuss Invasion of the Star Creatures, and we’re going to be recording a discussion of Journey to the Seventh Planet next week.
I’ll also give a plug for the “Manga 101” article I wrote this summer for School Library Journal. I’ve been reviewing books and apps for them for years, but this was my first article so it was a personal milestone for me.
Okay, that’s all for now. Thanks for listening, thanks for reading, and stay tuned for the new and improved site!
