I signed up for Plinky prompts. Ever heard of that? It’s a site that gives you blog post prompts. I was going to try one out today for the first time. The prompt was, “What book could you read over and over?” Since my answers are Stargirl and Cat’s Cradle, and you already know that, I tried to think of others. But that’s pretty much it. Since I’ve entered the world of book submissions, it’s changed how I read considerably. Right now, I’m all about what’s new or notable in YA literature.

I’ve also begun noticing which publishers I end up reading most often. I usually don’t check when I’m ordering the book, but when I go to read it, I notice it immediately. The publishers you’ll see on my shelf most are (in this order): Knopf, Arthur A. Levine, Delacorte, and Flux. I don’t know why. I’m just attracted to their books.
