I'm one of the others.
As Leonie said, we're still working out what sorts of directions this blog will be going in - though books will of course feature prominently one way or other - but let us know if you have any thoughts, any requests...
I think it'll predominantly be a place we can talk about newly published and forthcoming books we're reading, and where we can enthuse about things between editions of the UBGs (so I don't have to wait for years and years before I can start telling people how much I loved Fly By Night last month, or The Invention of Hugo Cabret, or the new Emily Gravett picture book...).
We'll let you know about our forthcoming events - there should be a lot of exciting things planned for the coming months organised for the launch of our third volume, The Ultimate First Book Guide (pub. Feb 4th); and if there's anything you want to know ("Help! Just finished a great book - what should I be reading next?"), please ask!
PS Just received a press release from Puffin announcing a new Kevin Brooks book! Hooray! Am I the only person on here who thinks he's God?
