Hello all!


Please pardon my inexperience in this area, but I would like to venture into
the realm of "blogging" or creating a community forum where my students and
I can interact over the summer regarding  their book selections summer
reading.  I think it would be a cool way to encourage participation in their
local library programs and to discuss any great books they've found and
would like added to our collection.  However, being a newbie in this
particular area, I'd like to know the locations of some user-friendly
websites to aid in the process.  Since I'm encouraging the parents to
monitor and participate as well, it needs to be on a "safe" and relatively
commercial free area (or at least one that doesn't advertise inappropriately
for a K-6 population).  Any ideas?  Any educational  sites that allow
professionals the space to do this for a minimal fee?


Thanks so much.  I know the education weight of the literary masses will
guide my way!  :-)
