- KS Book Connect
- A new initiative that the state of Kansas has undertaken with Renaissance Learning to help students, parents and teachers select appropriate books for their reading and interest levels. This year when the students receive their Kansas State Reading Assessment scores, they will also receive a reading level.
- Pulse It!
- The site is aimed at 14- to 18-year-olds and will let teens do things they can do on such places as Facebook—like create personal profiles and befriend other members—as well as read and react to Simon &Schuster titles. S&S will make two books per month available to be read online for free and members can choose one of those titles and have 60 days to finish the book. Message boards will let readers discuss the book and rank it. The site will also have an author section where teens can interact with their favorite writers.
