How did #virtualbookclub get started?
All it took was one very exciting tweet sent out by Beth Panageotou on behalf of herself and Niki Ohs Barnes (2 amazing Twitter PLN members). I love to buddy read so this was a perfect opportunity for me. Plus, I have a library full of fantastic children's literature.

So, I answered them back and we were treated to this surprise.
@JuleeMurphy I love that book! The first audiobook I ever narrated.

Book lovers begin to sense something wonderful was happening and like magnets, we were drawn together to share our love of reading and great Kid Lit. We owe a great big THANK YOU to Beth and Niki for getting the book rolling.
