KidderLit–Not Just for Kids!

Posted by blatantbibliophiles on October 4, 2007

Chick

Remember reading about TwitterLit on the Grizzly Media and Unquiet Librarian blogs? Well now there’s KidderLit. Like TwitterLit, KidderLit features the first line of literature and allows you, the reader, to guess the title from which the first line originates. The difference is, the titles on KidderLit come from children’s and young adult literature. This week, in honor of Banned Books Week, the titles are from books which have frequently been requested to be banned from school and public libraries.
