I really loved doing my 5 A Day Keep the Doctor Away posts, but I have to admit they were pretty time consuming in terms of formatting – looking for the picture, copying the URL, formatting the text because it never automatically looks the way I want it to. It was something that I had to dedicate a bit of time to and focus on and took way longer than the time it took me to actually read the book. So I kind of abandoned the project.
While I was away at ALA Midwinter, though, we got an explosion of picture books in! We had a moratorium on ordering new books since June due to changing vendors, budget issues, reorganization, and the usual gamit of public library issues, but now we’re back in business and I need to catch up! So, I’ve moved my 5 a Day Keep the Doctor Away posts over to Pinterest, that way I can still keep tabs on the picture books I’m reading, still write a brief something to lock it into my brain (I’m very tactile when it comes to memory), and still see the pictures. I think it’ll be even easier to use Pinterest since all the photos/reviews will be in one place and I won’t have to toggle between posts to jog my memory.
So, if you’re interested, check it out!
