As National Book Month comes to a close, I hope you and all of your reader-friends will take the time to get together for some great conversation about the wonderful books you've had a chance to read - whether that's just this month, the past year, or your whole lives. What a wonderful opportunity to get more titles on your 'to-read' list, and also an opportunity to catch up with friends. I hope you can find the time because I know you are all busy, busy, busy.
I also want to remind you that early registration for the Illinois Reading Council Conference will be over February 1st, and after that the fee goes up slightly. It's still the best bang for the buck for professional development! Hope to see you all in March!
