Twitter much?

Okay, I get Facebook and My Space, but I am not sure about Twitter. It kind of reminds me of the status updates that are posted on Facebook, but without any profiles or fun stuff.
Several YA authors like to Twitter – Sarah Dessen and Maureen Johnson, for example.
Or you can search Twitter for your favorite authors (those are just two of mine) and other celebrities.

And the winner is

The Goonies
For your Cheezy 80s Afternoon: THE GOONIES are a group of seven young friends from a small Northwest town who find themselves on a thrilling underground adventure filled with humor and heart-pounding peril as they seek the secrets behind the treasure of the notorious pirate, One-Eyed Willie.
The runner up was E.T., so we might show that in the future, although it’s not very cheezy.
Stop by the theater in the library on Wednesday, February 18 from 2:00-4:00 to see Chunk do the the “Truffle Shuffle.” (If you don’t know what that is, then you REALLY need to stop by the theater.)
