Are you ready to take a wild trip through a book? All month long, we're talking about Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan at readergirlz, and we're inviting you to come along for the ride! Read the new issue of readergirlz.

Then, October 13th through 17th, we're celebrating Teen Read Week with Night Bites, a series of online live chats with fourteen awesome authors. (Learn more about Night Bites in a separate post.)

Rachel and I captured our first face-to-face meeting on camera. Watch our interview on rgz TV!



Talk About It

What did you think of the book? Are you going to see the movie? What's on your personal playlist? Talk with other readers and with the author herself at the readergirlz forum.

I first read Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist in 2006, and I enjoyed it just as much if not more when I read it again in 2008. (I purposely re-read it the day I went to see the movie.)

I had a great deal of fun discussing both the book and the film at length with my friend Jackie. A YA librarian known for her blog Interactive Reader, Jackie is also on the postergirlz advisory coucil with me. Read the first part of our roundtable. Come back here next week for part two!

You can chat with Rachel Cohn live at the readergirlz forum on Thursday, October 23rd! The chat starts promptly at 6 PM PST/9 PM EST and will last for about an hour.
