Amelia Bloomer List mentioned!

The new edition of Read, Remember, Recommend for Teens: a Reading Journal for Book Lovers, created by Rachelle Rogers Knight (Sourcebooks, 2010, ISBN 9781402237195 $15.99) includes the 2009 Amelia Bloomer List (with links to the web site) on pages 65-67.  According to the back cover, the book’s “pages are designed for teens to journal thoughts,” and includes “more than 2,500 award-winning and notable reading suggestions,” “cross referenced lists and categories that help parents, teachers, librarians, and teens choose books,” and “a comprehensive list of literary blogs, book award lists, and literary terms.”  The spiral binding and note-friendly format encourages the use of the book for journaling (though limiting its usefulness for circulating library collections).  While there are a few teen book lists that are not yet included, this book introduces a wide world of reading resources designed to steer discerning readers toward the best in young adult literature.  I’m glad the Amelia Bloomer List is included.
