Bookends is moving! We are are now the Youth blog for Booklist Online. You can find us at: http://bookends.booklistonline.com/. We hope you will bookmark our new address and visit us regularly at Booklist. You can also reach us from the main page of Booklist Online. Our banner logo will soon be added here, but in the meantime you can hit the Blogs link at the top of the page and access Bookends there. No subscription is necessary to access the blogs or the content on the main landing pages- so we hope you will follow us to our new digs and keep on reading and commenting.
