Great American Postcard Swap {Georgia}

Interesting, Blackbeard is also associated with N Carolina because that's where he was killed.

It's so important to draw attention to reading, and attract reluctant readers to it, especially boys.

I grew up as a reluctant reader, in spite of the fact that my father published over 70 books. Now I write action-adventures & mysteries, especially for tween boys, that avid boy readers and girls enjoy just as much.

My blog, Books for Boys is dedicated to drawing attention to the importance of reading. And my new book, Lost Island Smugglers - first in the Sam Cooper Adventure Series - is coming out in August. .

Thank you so much for sharing your post on Georgia with the readers at ABC & 123. My son has memorized just about every fact from that MTH Pirates book. Loves it! ~Katie
