ALA Book Awards!

I knew they'd be announced this morning, so I started by doing a Google search to find the winners.  Then I thought, "I should just check the blogs I'm following."  Annie Cardi's blog immediately popped up with this link to the announcement.  Hooray for book bloggers!

Like I posted on Annie's site, I’m happy that Inside Out & Back Again got an honor; I love that book. And hooray for Wonderstruck — I hadn’t thought of it for the Schneider, but that’s perfect. Yay for the amazing Kadir Nelson!

What are your thoughts on seeing the winners?

Lots of titles new to me to explore. I think that’s what I love the most about book awards.  Off to place some library requests...
