I would like to join in on a small protest, and hope that you will too. Apparently, there is a proposal by publishers to put age limit "recommendations" on children's books. I think this is a perfectly ridiculous idea, but I would like to direct you to Table Talk's blog, here and here, where she explains the situation far more eloquently than I ever could.
If you agree with us that this is a ridiculous idea, please visit No To Age Banding and sign the protest. As of this posting, there are over 1,360 signatures on the list, and I for one would like to see that number increase.
April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!
