Why Yes, Hank (and John) Green, the Universe IS Weird!

Hank Green, brother of author John Green, author and vlogger, recently posted this song on his blog, entitled The Universe is Weird: A Song.

Teen Book Finder App

YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) has recently released an app where you can access their booklists and awards for the past several years. More after the jump.

It is available for iOS both through the Apple App Store and through YALSA's website. In real terms, it's a great place to find your next favorite book! The video below shows how to use it.

It's a pretty standard instructional video, so it's not as much fun as most YouTube videos...But afterwards, you can watch these corgis playing tetherball!
