This is just a quick entry to catch you all up on a few key events in NFNT’s recent past! First, as some of you may already have noticed, NFNT’s manga reviews are now also appearing on the excellent teen readers’ site, The folks over at Teenreads and I had been discussing this for a while, and it’s finally happened! I’m extremely happy to have our reviews hosted at Teenreads, and they’re equally pleased to have manga reviews. So, yay all around! Check out their site — it’s a wealth of reviews, interviews, and information.

Also, I was just informed that this website has just been selected as one of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) Great Website for Kids! Whoo hoo! We were one of 17 sites selected for the honor this year, and I’m bowled over! Thanks! To learn more about the other sites, and how this all works, please visit their website here.
