My Bio

My Bio
My name is Sharon Levin and I've been reviewing children's literature for 18 years. I founded and run the Bay Area Children's Literature List. My biggest passion (outside my family) is getting books into the hands of children and teens. My favorite thing is getting non-readers to realize that they're readers. I also LOVE t-shirts that have to do with books or literature. As soon as I figure out how to do it, I'll have a click through on the above picture so you can see my entire collection (and where to get them).

Finally Launching!! LIFE, LAUGHTER AND LITERATURE!

After making sure that I retain my title as Queen of Procrastination, I am FINALLY launching my blog.  (This was set up almost two years ago, sigh.)

I've been reviewing children's literature for 17 years, reading it for 48 (never stopped not even in those years between being a child and having children) and love talking about it and 'evangelizing' for books that I'm passionate about.

However, life in general often gives me things to muse about, so I won't be just talking about books, there will be a lot of life happening too.  Hopefully, this will also mean laughter.

I hope you enjoy reading this blog.  I will (once I figure out how to do things) be vetting comments, since, while I do not mind if people disagree with me, I don't want to allow even a nanosecond (yes, I'm married to an engineer, why do you ask?) of hate speech on my page.  If you disagree respectfully, you'll be posted. 

If you have hints, since I have obviously never done those before, I'd love to hear them.  Just be kind, since I'm a newbie. 

Okay.  Here goes....

  1. And yes, I just noticed that I actually got the name of the blog wrong in the title for the first post. sigh. Well, I can only improve from here.

    1. Thanks! I have no idea how to do this. How did you set up your bio page?

    2. Click on your name. Then click "Edit Profile." Should work. I set my blog up before blogger changed things around a bit, so it's different from how I did it. But that should work.
