It seems that A few of my posts have been hijacked by spam. The filter did not see them, but they seemed to be nestled in there snugger than a puppy in a pile of old clothes. So a few posts from the last months have been deleted to get rid of the pests. The filter seems to be working on all new posts. A word to the wise – keep your WordPress software up to date!

Have you started thinking about your summer reading plans? Well there is a great resources for you from the American Library Association http://www.ala.org/ala/alsc/alscresources/summerreading/recsummerreading/recommendedreading.cfm .
