More on LookyBook: In Search of an Angel

Sadly, www.lookybook.com, closed its doors to the economy and in www.schoollibraryjournal.com, it’s noted, ““We were fraught with the perfect storm of issues,” says cofounder Craig Frazier, also the author and illustrator of the “Stanley” series (Chronicle) of picture books for children. “While we had seed money to get started, it became difficult in this environment to get money. It would take an angel coming out of the woodwork to step up and reverse Lookybook’s closure.”

“If clicks were cash, however, the site, which opened its virtual doors in November 2007, may have flourished. It was attracting 55,000 users a month before shuttering, along with 14,000 subscribers, who used the site to peruse the roughly 550 children’s books, some of them decades old; share their favorites; store them on a virtual book shelf; and, of course, buy them from publishers.”

and speaking of the economy and angels, I came across this site: www.jobangels.org earlier in the week and I am paying it forward.
