This Saturday we'd like to share three pieces of news for you....
EAST COAST BOOK LOVERS - GET READY!
At this year's festival, they will have 250 authors, 12 stages, and 150 exhibitors. Launched in 2005, the Brookyln Book Festival has soared in recognition and fame, especially with it's informal motto, "Hip, Smart, Diverse."

DIVERGENT FILM SET FOR 2014 RELEASE!
After Twilight, I am so torn. I'm so glad that this movie will be made a film, but I'm not sure I trust Summit to handle the awesomeness that is this book, LOL.
What Do You Think?
DON'T FORGET TO CHECK OUT:
On August 7, 2012, I posted Book News about National Public Radio's list of the Top 100 Teen Novels of all time. Check out the list here.
But the list has also been the subject of a lot of debate. Of course, it's always tricky trying to define exactly what constitutes a teen novel, but NPR tried their best to be fair. Still, some critics are upset that books like A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and Ender's Game were cut off the list for being "too mature". But if those are too mature, why aren't The Hunger Games as well?
