Happy 2008!

Happy New Year, and welcome to the Stone Arch Books (SAB) blog!

This blog was born because we realized that there was an exciting and inspiring conversation taking place around the world about books and reading and kids. It was happening all over the internet, on blogs, discussion groups, and wikis. There, people were talking about our passion--getting kids to read--but we weren’t talking back.

Now we are. Here on the SAB blog, we’ll give you a glimpse into the workings of a small group of creative, innovative, engaged people (that’s the SAB staff!). We’ll ask you questions. We’ll answer your questions. We’ll talk about the latest industry news. We’ll let you know when we’re traveling, and talk about who we meet and what we learn. We'll showcase our authors and illustrators. And as we grow, there will be more and more information that you can find only on the Stone Arch Books blog.

We’re excited to be here. Thanks for letting us be part of the conversation. Check back often; we have lots more to say.

Glad to see you are joining the participatory side of web 2.0 and giving us the behind the scenes, more informal information.

I'm still hoping you'll start putting booklists that can be printed on your web page so my students can record which titles they have read.

One of my 4th grade girls took my Stone Arch catalog and returned it with an order partially completed of all the titles she knew we needed for our library.

Diane, would you be surprised to hear that's not the first time we've heard about kids stealing the SAB catalog? :) Thanks for the welcome to Web 2.0. It's fun to be here!
