Hey, tumblarians who pretend you never read New Adult but you totally do. Yes, I’m looking at you.
I just finished Deeper by Robin York. It was the second NA title I’ve ever been <i>impressed</i> with. The other is Tammara Webber’s Easy. And this book covered about three times as much ground as that one did while being topical and not using rape as a plot device.
Here’s hoping the sequel doesn’t magically suck.
i need to read some new adult, who has some recommendations? give me 5 now plz
T1D author Laura Kronen gives names to all the lows she has experienced. Can you think of more?
“What’s interesting about low blood sugar is that the symptoms are never the same from person to person or episode to episode. There are many types of lows, and you can experience a different one every day or even a few simultaneously.”
"What students—and, really, anyone who wants to function in careers in the future—should learn is how to be digitally literate. "

So even if your goal is to teach all students to code, schools will first need to introduce computer-science concepts that help students learn how to stack the building blocks themselves.
They don’t need to learn how to build the next Dropbox, but they should understand how the cloud works.”
“As a group, Millennials are as likely as older adults to have used a library in the past 12 months, and more likely to have used a library website. Among those ages 16-29, 50% reported having used a library or bookmobile in the course of the past year in a September 2013 survey. Some 47% of those 30 and older had done so. Some 36% of younger Americans used a library website in that time frame, compared with 28% of those 30 and older. Despite their relatively high use of libraries, younger Americans are among the least likely to say that libraries are important.”—Major new Pew study looks at millennials’ reading habits. This particular finding is striking — all the more reason to partake in the Knight Foundation’s 2014 NewsChallenge, which seeks breakthrough ideas to “leverage libraries as a platform to build more knowledgeable communities.” Because, lest we forget, “when a library is open, no matter its size or shape, democracy is open, too.” (via explore-blog)
