A Roundup of My Posts at From the Mixed Up Files

If you hang out with me on social media you know I’ve been busy writing posts for the From The Mixed Up Files of Middle Grade Authors blog the last few weeks. (If you’re not hanging out with me, please, come on over and connect). It’s always fun to see my posts up on other sites, and even more fun to share them again on mine. With that in mind, I thought I’d do a little round up here on the blog in case you missed them.

The first post involved me nerding out to space exploration and Elon Musk’s roadster. It includes a list of space-themed middle grade books you’ll want to add to your want to read list.

The second post was a simple book list, filled with (nearly) all the new middle grade books coming out in March. (And there’s a lot. My to-read pile is seriously out of control). Here’s the list.

Thanks for reading. And be sure to visit From the Mixed Up Files of Middle Grade Authors. There’s a ton of great stuff for teachers, librarians, kids, and writers over there.

Jolabokaflod: A Post About Book-Giving at the Mixed-Up Files Blog

Book-giving | www.patriciabaileyauthor.comLast week, I shared a post about gift-giving over at The Mixed-Up Files of Middle Grade Authors – the spot where I blog when I’m not blogging here. In it, I talk about the Icelandic tradition of giving books on Christmas Eve – and my own book-giving traditions.

I also asked some of my writing friends to share their book-giving lists – which they did, so there’s also a great book list of must-reads over there.

You can read the post here.

I’d love to hear about  your book-giving traditions – or the best books you’ve given or received as gifts. Feel free to share in the comments below.
