Ok, I'm officially wierded out about the state of children's books right now. I just found out that there is a new book called The Secret Blog of Raisin Rodriguez by Judy Goldschmidt. This is a book that reads exactly like a blog, comments and everything. There is a very brief description of it here. It sounds kind of intriguing, if not terribly innovative in plot. I'm not sure if I'm scared or excited that blogs are not suitable material for books. Anyway, I'm rather interested in it. I may try to get it from the library at some point or something.
Oh, and the website listed in the book as the location of the fictional blog is twoscoopsofraisin.com, which does exist as the blog belonging to the book character, but rather than the rather cool webiste that it could have been, the site is sadly just one blog entry in black type on a white background (not even centered or anything) with no frills (like comments) or anything. Hopefully the website is in the works and will eventually have something useful (like information about the book or author).
And I can't believe that I just blogged about a book about blogging. *sigh*Posted by Katie at May 1, 2005 04:25 AM
