Book Scavenger Website Update!

The Book Scavenger website has a new look! I can hardly believe it, but it’s been over six years since I launched the website and the game for the publication of Book Scavenger in 2015. Six years!!! Back then, I had no idea if anyone would read Book Scavenger, let alone want to play a version of the game in the book. But I kept thinking about how if I had read Book Scavenger when I was a kid, I would have wanted the game to be real.

Fun Bookish Things To Do In January!
