Thing #19

I enjoyed playing around on the Web 2.0 awards list. I was drawn to lulu.com. This is an interesting site which allows you to publish, buy and sell books, music and calendars. You can also use the site for creating and publishing your art work and music. I was drawn to this on a personal note because I have a secret desire to write a novel. I also enjoy scrapbooking and I like the fact that I could publish a calendar or photo book. I have a tradition of creating a homemade calendar for my mom every year for Christmas. This year I will be very busy and I could see using this site to create my calendar. On a professional basis I could see sharing this site with my students. I have several students who are currently working on writing a novel. This site allows you to actually them to write a book and then publish it. I know some kids are creative enough that they would try to sell their books. As a librarian I could share this site with all students especially those who I know are into writing and creating. I also know that there are very creative students who could use this site for their art and music.
