January is YA Radio month on A Book and a Chat, with special guest throughout the month, not only authors but bloggers as well.
Today my guest on YA MONTH - "A Book and a Chat" was one of the people I call the "Sham-Wow" of YA literature, one of the great Bloggers of Young Adult LiteratureAlyssa who writes in the blog "The Shady Glade".
The show as normal was full of interest and entertainment, this can only be expected from a person who has read 179 books in 2009 which incorporated a total of 33,239 pages as well as making over 400 blog posts.
During the show Alyssa was able to share with us some of her favorite books of 2009 as well as some she is looking forward to reading in 2010. We chatted about how the YA literature filed has exploded in popularity during 2009 as well as some of the wonderful things these young bloggers and readers do to help others less well off.
the show was so interesting and entertaining the time just flew by, it is one I'm sure listeners of all ages no matter what you read, or even if you read will be able to listen to and enjoy
