Twitterville Talk #54

Twitter was hopping this week especially with ALA getting into full swing this weekend.  Wishing everyone a wonderful summer weekend (or winter for my friends on the other side of the world).

To start the week off this site was retweeted, Famous Writers' Retreats:  The Rooms Where Classics Were Created.  Some of the one room cottages are so cozy, who wouldn't want to write?

Even people who are not Harry Potter fans can appreciate the wonder of "Harry Potter' Theme Played On Glasses of Water: Watch The Incredible Video.

I can completely identify with the kids that wrote these letters.  I hated going to camp, any camp, anytime of the year.  'P. S. I Still Hate It Here!':  Hilarious Kid Letters From Camp

Thanks to the Children's Bookshelf for these tweets.
