New York Time Graphic Books 
March 28, 2010



Today's list of Graphic Novel best sellers is included today from the New York Times! Graphic novels are so VERY popular in my libraries! Children, teen, tweens, and adults are constantly checking them out and talking about how much they enjoy them! It is always exciting sharing the list New York Times list with them each week so they can decide which ones to read. It is such a wonderful experience. I just had a mother tell me yesterday that her son now loves to read thanks to the graphic novels... He looked rather sheepish until I winked at him and told him that I love reading them too!!!!!!!!!!! 

Well... Here's the list.... Write me and tell me which ones you enjoy reading and why.... Who know... maybe if you persuade me, I just might tell you the names of some of my favorites..::)))))

Until the next time!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Reading..........

A children's book and/or a graphic novel a day... will keep the scary monster away!!!!!!!!!!!!
