Yesterday Sheila posted her Passing the Baton explanation. You might also like to read her post on the date that she took up this meme a number of years ago. I know we will all agree that Sheila has been a wonderful and enthusiastic host of this meme and has been a faithful servant of it and us over the years. When I was teaching I used to join Jen at Teach Mentor Texts for her kidlit version of It's Monday What Are You Reading? It's where I first heard of Sheila! And as I take a look at my last post I see a comment by Elizabeth at Silver's Reviews! Only noticed that now.
I hope I can follow in Sheila's footsteps and honor her and the meme by keeping it going and I encourage all its loyal followers to do the same! Let's do it!
I feel very honored to be invited by Sheila to be the host for the meme and fully realise the gift she is giving me. Thank you Sheila. I am a relative newcomer to the book blogging world, and I appreciate your choice greatly. And I'm excited too.
Sheila has also artfully designed a button for me, and when I compared it to the one I had worked on, decided I liked her effort much more. So for the time being that will be the new button, at least until I come up with one that I consider equals her offering. Maybe a new one for the start of 2016.
In the meantime this meme will begin on my blog this coming Monday. Hope I'll see you there!
