FYI

Please note that Boys Blogging Books is a collective project between a mom and her boys. It started as an idea for the boys to share their thoughts and opinions about the books they read. It has grown into a bit more than what we expected, very quickly.

There is talk on the web about “The adult behind the curtain.” Yes there is an adult behind the curtain.

The boys like to read. They are excited about sharing their thoughts, especially when they know someone is listening to them. They also have music lessons, and homework, and sports and friends. They get to do the fun stuff, read the books, write the reviews, and I tackle the technical stuff. Some of the site ideas are theirs and some are mine. All opinions are theirs. They get final say on everything. They are solely responsible for writing their own reviews* and coming up with questions for author interviews.

*Reviews:
Before the first post ever made its way to public eyes, we spent weeks reviewing Scholastics how to on book reviews.

Thanks goes out to everyone who has passed along the info about BBB and everyone who has stopped by to visit.

Most Sincerely,

Sheri Goad
Blog Moderator (aka an adult)

If there are any questions, feel free to contact me.

I will gladly pass messages on to the boys, I just prefer the WWW doesn’t have a direct link to their inboxes. =)

Thanks, Sheri! I think the blog is a great idea, and I look forward to hearing more about what the boys have to say.

Great idea for a site. Check out my reading list for YA and MG boys: http://gregneri.com/g.neri_readinglist.html

Any boy that reads is okay by me!
