I discovered last night via the 12books twitterfeed that this weekend sees the launch of an online literary festival of children’s books and authors.  It’s been put together by the folks at An Awfully Big Blog Adventure and yes, the thing that caught my eye was the fact they abbreviate that to ABBA…  I don’t know that it’s been particularly well documented on this blog, but me and Abba (the popular beat combo) have history.

Anyway, the author lineup for this thing is amazing, and you can join in just by turning on your computer and opening the site in your browser.  You don’t even have to get dressed, which is always a hassle at the weekend really isn’t it.  Throughout Saturday and Sunday various writers will be sharing posts and doing Q&As, and I’d hazard a guess that some of them will be on twitter too, using the hashtag #ABBAlitfest.

There is a bit of background on how it all came about on the My Favourite Books blog if you’re interested, which I was.  See you there from 9.30 onwards!
