Book Recs That Rock

Hello, friends!

I am starting a new blog next week to promote literacy. I will be compiling and posting book recommendations of different celebrities and posting them once or twice a week. We all know that reading is a very cool pasttime, but I want the starstruck world to know it, too. I want someone to google celebrities and see what they are READING, not what they are wearing, not who they are smooching, but what they are recommending. (To be fair, I read Us Weekly and read about that other stuff, too :).

Please click on BOOK RECS OF THE ROCK AND FAMOUS to go to my new blog. Please follow so everyone will know that reading is important to so many of us! I don't expect anyone to comment on every post, just do if you feel like it.
I appreciate your help and support! Spread the word if you can.

THANK YOU!!

Hi Kelly - I'm a fellow campaigner stopping by to say hello and nice to meet you! I write picture books, mostly, but would like to branch out into MG/YA. Looking forward to getting to know you through the campaign!

Hi Kelly, I'm a campaigner too. I am wildly in love with Paul McCartney. If you ever get a lead on him let me know. One of my life goals is to meet him, or at least talk to him. Love him. :) Who's your all time favorite musician?
