The year's best lists are rolling in, opinions abound on e-books and all children need to have books of their own; the tweeters continue to tweet up a loud chorus on Twitter this week.

For Their Children, Many E-Book Fans Insist on Paper  To a diehard fan of children's books and young adult books that you can hold in your hand and literally turn the pages, this bit of news has me grinning ear to ear.

Many thanks to Larry Ferlazzo, blogger of Larry Ferlazzo's Websites of the Day for the above two tweets this week.
