Or as Mr. Arlo Guthrie, 70s folk legend, said,
And can you, can you imagine 50 people a day, I said 50 people a day, walking in singin’ a bar of Alice’s Restaurant and walking out. And friends, they may think it’s a movement!
While I’ve been storming the blog-o-sphere with Eye Candy Wednesdays and thoughts on YA books for the not-so-young adult, something similar has happened in my own backyard at Cincinnati’s Joseph-Beth Booksellers, and I just had to share:
“Y(A) NOT? The Embarrassment Free Book Club for Adults Who Love Teen Fiction. This month is discussing Birthmarked by Caragh O’Brien. Show your YA pride! We, as grown women, love to read young adult fiction and Y(A) NOT? We read them and we talk about them with our friends, so we thought, let’s all get together and talk about the best of the best!”
YESSSS! We’re taking over mainstream fiction!
