This month's readergirlz book is How to Be Popular by Meg Cabot. Check out the new issue of readergirlz to learn more about the book, read an interview with the author, even listen to a playlist "created" by one of the book's main characters!

Discuss the book with other readers at the readergirlz forum all month long. Meg Cabot will be participating in a live chat at the forum on Thursday, December 18th beginning at 6 PM PST/9 PM EST. The chat will last for about an hour.

I spoke with the readergirlz divas, advisors, and postergirlz about their experiences with popularity. I've compiled all of their thoughts into one big post. Check it out!

Recommended Reads

Keeping with this month's theme of Self-Respect, the readergirlz divas and the postergirlz advisory council recommend the following books:

Fiction
How Not to Be Popular by Jennifer Ziegler
A La Carte by Tanita S. Davis
Perfect You by Elizabeth Scott
Fringe Girl by Valerie Frankel

Non-Fiction
Respect: A Girl's Guide to Getting Respect & Dealing When Your Line Is Crossed by Courtney Macavinta and Andrea Vander Pluym

Read, Reflect, Reach Out

Contrary to popular belief, the key to being popular is not about being interesting. It's about being interested. It's about stepping outside yourself – learning to listen and empathize with others, lending a helping hand, and being friendly with everyone. Visit http://www.dosomething.org and look for causes that appeal to you, then find out how to take action. Get interested and get involved!
