Some Bookish Links

Book Club For Boys has some suggestions for starting a boys' book club and some reading lists based on level. I thought Jen might be interested, I have hard time finding things for C (right now it's Captain Underpants and Goosebumps.)

Flashlight Worthy. I found this through Twitter (I should say they found me). They publish book lists on various topics on a frequent basis. And I love lists.

Anybody else found anything fun or interesting?
