What's your Young Adult reader rank?

I'm a big fan of the Forever Young Adult blog, and I'm a big fan of Young Adult literature. So when Forever YA created an Ultimate YA Checklist, I was like oo, oo rank me! This is a fabulous list with lots of books that have, you know, official literary merit alongside books that, um, don't, but are still fun and enlightening to read. I'm rather proud of my 53% score, making me a Belle. It's true, I have always wanted to swish around on a ladder. How do you rank? Click through to find out.

Convos with Coco

Have you seen Convos With My 2 Year Old?
It's just enough silliness paired with bizzare to be deliciously funny.

Movable Art

I came across the art of Theo Jansen by accident and what a happy accident it was!
He has engineered giant wind-powered creatures.

Question: could you make something similar on a much smaller scale using plastic straws?

Word Cloud Workshop

They say words are an artform. It's espeically true when you make a poem into a word cloud.
Come to the Word Cloud program Friday, Apirl 11, 2014 from 2-3!
It takes concrete poetry to a different level.
If you can't make it to the program, take a look at Tagxedo
and make one on your own.
The word cloud poem above is Hug O' War by Shel Silverstein.
This one to the left is Early Bird by the same poet.
