Tiny Books Fit in One Hand. Will They Change the Way We Read? - The New York Times

Tiny Books Fit in One Hand. Will They Change the Way We Read? - The New York Times | Reading adventures | Scoop.it
This month, Dutton, which is part of Penguin Random House, began releasing its first batch of mini books, with four reissued novels by the best-selling young-adult novelist John Green. The tiny editions are the size of a cellphone and no thicker than your thumb, with paper as thin as onion skin. They can be read with one hand — the text flows horizontally, and you can flip the pages upward, like swiping a smartphone.

Not Even Bones | Teenreads

Not Even Bones | Teenreads | Reading adventures | Scoop.it
Nita doesn’t murder supernatural beings and sell their body parts on the internet --- her mother does that. Nita just dissects the bodies after they’ve been “acquired.” Until her mom brings home a live specimen and Nita decides she wants out; dissecting a scared teenage boy is a step too far. But when she decides to save her mother’s victim, she ends up sold in his place --- because Nita herself isn’t exactly “human.” She has the ability to alter her biology, a talent that is priceless on the black market. Now on the other side of the bars, if she wants to escape, Nita must ask herself if she’s willing to become the worst kind of monster.

The Wind in the Willows Isn't Really a Children's Book | Literary Hub | Reading adventures | Scoop.it

The Wind in the Willows is one of the most famous English children’s books, one of the most famous books about animals, and a classic book about “messing about in boats.” Famous, it certainly is, but it was never meant to be a book for children.

YA Books About Social Anxiety | Book Riot

YA Books About Social Anxiety | Book Riot | Reading adventures | Scoop.it
It’s easy to quip about social anxiety. Wrap it up in a joke about being awkward or uncomfortable around other people, and something which is a real and debilitating mental challenge becomes “relatable” and easy to laugh about. But the reality is: social anxiety can be paralyzing. This is something we can see—and, in some cases experience alongside those who struggle with it—in YA books about social anxiety.

Dry | Teenreads | Reading adventures | Scoop.it
The drought --- or the Tap-Out, as everyone calls it --- has been going on for a while now. Everyone’s lives have become an endless list of don’ts: don’t water the lawn, don’t fill up your pool, don’t take long showers. Until the taps run dry. Suddenly, Alyssa’s quiet suburban street spirals into a warzone of desperation; neighbors and families turn against each other on the hunt for water. And when her parents don’t return and her life --- and the life of her brother --- is threatened, Alyssa has to make impossible choices if she’s going to survive.
