Celia’s recommended sites for writers and readers
The number of children’s book sites is growing. They vary in usefulness and some of the views expressed are very personal and quirky, but some of the best are very good indeed and offer a great way of finding out what’s out there and what people are reading. Some of them offer readers the chance to submit their own reviews; others offer help to writers and the opportunity get their work read by others.
This is a list of recommendations and is not meant to be exhaustive. If anyone knows of a good site for readers or writers – get in touch. ~ Celia Rees
