We want to help create motivated and engaged young readers. This blog is about children's and YA literature (especially New Zealand), literacy research, and ways to get, and keep, kids reading.
Times they are a changing and so our shelves. As the impact of ebooks widens (or is that deepens) there are some interesting downstream effects, and one of those is around the changing nature of bookshelves in our homes.
My bookshelves almost constitute a Health and Safety hazard especially after staggering home with another bag of books from a local school fair. However, IKEA have recognised a change in what customers are putting on their book shelves, - and it isn’t school fair books. They have responded by redesigning their classic BILLY bookshelf for more eclectic usage, that is for more than just books but also for “ornaments, tchotchkes and the odd coffee-table tome.” You can read more here.
What’s next? books without paper…
