A few months ago, my husband was reading the Penn State Alumni magazine; and he found a page devoted to books written by Penn Staters. He thought it would be a great idea if I supported our Alma mater and read some of the books. Then, he took it one step further and suggested that I could actually feature "Penn State books" on my blog.
Our household is very Penn State proud, and my husband and I even have a Penn State Christmas tree each year and a stand-up Joe Paterno in our basement (it was my 10th anniversary present -- and I didn't even mind!) As much as I love Penn State and think it's the best university ever, I realize that only a few of you probably share my adoration for all things Nittany. However, I figured that I'm not the only book blogger (or reader) out there who likes to support my school.
So.....I decided to challenge myself to read and feature more books written by Penn Staters. As a result, I am starting a Back-to-School Feature where I will occasionally feature a book written by a Penn Stater or an author who is a fellow Penn State alum. I will be tracking my Back-to-School Feature posts in the Mr. Linky below.
You might be reading this and think that it's kind of a silly idea; and if that's the case, I will just track my PSU-related books here. However, I'd love to have others join in the fun! If you decide to feature anything book-related to your Alma mater, I'd love to have you post a link below in the Mr. Linky form. In fact, if you feature a book related to any school that you attended, root for or even live near, it can count -- it's all about school spirit.
I wanted to keep this feature as simple as possible. You don't have to sign up or commit to anything. If you want to participate, all you have to do is go to the Mr. Linky below and list your name, the school, and what you are featuring (i.e. author's name or book). For example, Julie/Booking Mama/PSU (The September Sisters.) Then you can link to your post. It's that easy! And, if you have already some posts that qualify, please include them below -- the posts don't have to be new.
Oh! I almost forgot -- feel free to grab the button and share. To make things easier, I will put the Back-to School Feature button on the top of my right sidebar for easy access.
