Just stopping by to wish you Happy New Year!

I was ecstatic when I heard them announce that Grace Lin's "Ling & Ting" had received a Geisel Honor Award! I was also happy that Joyce Sidman got a Newbery Honor Award for "Dark Emperor." I wish poetry books received awards from ALA more frequently.

BTW, I thought Sidman's "Ubiquitous" was an exceptional poetry collection too.

My to-be-read pile just grew! I'm interested in reading Five Flavors of Dumb, Freak Observer, and Moon Over Manifest.

Jaw-dropping moments: Ship Break by Bacigalupi winning the Printz and One Crazy Summer being honored for the Newbery. I was really hoping it would win. I am glad it won the Coretta Scott King Author Award.

Elaine and Adrienne, I have a lot of catching up to do, too! The kids' book I want to read next is Zora and Me. I'm intrigued by the premise.
