At Internet Scout, we take pride in providing links to fantastic online resources in our weekly Scout Report. We know many readers appreciate the variety of resources we seek out. However, we occasionally enjoy finding resources to support a specific theme. The Scout Report Special Issue: National Book Month is the outgrowth of such an effort. The resources in this issue coincide with National Book Month, which occurs each October and is an opportunity for students, teachers, librarians, and other lifelong learners to come together in their love of books and reading. Needless to say, this makes October one of Scout's favorite months! We hope the resources we have included will inspire our readers to look at books in new ways and to celebrate National Book Month with us.
