Because It's Cold, but Refuses to be a Snow Day: Bitz and Pieces for January

Because it just keeps not snowing enough to keep us home with hot cocoa, we're giving you a list of fun lit stuff from around the internet that would be great to look at if the weather gods ever decided to send us a day off... Enjoy!

Okay, on with the show:

Youth Services Corner leads us to a list of soon-to-be-released movies based on books. Beastly is finally going to be making it's way to a theater new you.

The fabulous author/blogger Melissa Walker has the low down on the group, Young Adult Authors Against Bullying. 

Are you an aspiring filmmaker? Here's a challenge to condense a Newbery Award Winning book into 90 seconds. The one featured here is pretty much awesome.

Do you like your YA stories to revolve around the campus instead of the high school hallways? The Compulsive Reader has a list of YA books that go beyond high school.

Remember when we told you about Figment and Wattpad? The Hub has even more ways that you can use technology to tell your own stories!
