In this week's Weekly Geeks, Dewey needs us to help her move. Here is what she says:

I have a big pile of books waiting to be reviewed. I have less than two weeks before I move. I do not want to have to pack and move all these books. So what I would like is some help getting these books reviewed, so that I can post my reviews and get rid of the books in giveaways or by returning them to the library.

How can you help? Please choose one of the books and ask me three questions about it in your blog. You might even invite your readers who have read the same book(s) to answer the questions themselves in your comments.

For each book, I will:

1. Choose someone’s three questions. The more unique and thought-provoking your questions, the more likely they are to be chosen, of course.
2. Write a mini-review answering the three questions (and, obviously, linking to the questioner’s blog).
3. Offer the book to the blogger whose questions I answer, IF the book is mine to give away.
4. If the blogger doesn’t want the book (has already read it, for example) I’ll just put one of the usual giveaways at the bottom of the mini-review post.

I chose Just Listen by Sarah Dessen. I am hoping Dewey will answer these three questions:

  1. Though this is classified as a YA novel, what made you pick up this book in the first place?
  2. Assuming you have a teenage daughter, will you talk about this book with her? Will you also recommend this to her? Why?
  3. Do you think the young readers who read this will benefit and learn from this book? What is your opinion as an adult reader?

If you have read this book, I would love to hear from you too.

    Great questions, Melody. I especially like the one you seek opinion on from an adult on a YA book. How about you? Why would you pick up a YA book? I think we all did sometime ago. :)

    Question #2 is fantastic ... I really enjoy hearing opinions from my sons (11 and 15) about books, it usually presents an entirely different perspective.
    Good Luck!

    Alice - Thanks! :) I'm always interested to hear the adult's POV when they're reading children/YA books. For me, one reason is I'm attracted to the story premise; another thing is some of these books bring me fond memories of my childhood. ;)

    Book Zombie - Thank you. That's exactly my thoughts! :)


  4. Great questions, Melody! I hope Dewey picks your questions!
