As I do every year, I enjoyed watching the live video feed of the ALA award ceremony yesterday. And now I have a new list of books to read - yay!
I'm thrilled for A.S. King, whose book PLEASE IGNORE VERA DIETZ, received a Printz honor. I had two predictions for the Printz, and that book was one of them.
I love this poem, titled "What Happened to Your Book Today" by Kate Messner, which reminds us that the impact of books is really more important than anything else.
And now, I must get to work revising my work-in-progress, as there is much work to be done. I also have a seed of an idea for another book, which is always an exciting thing, since ideas don't come easily to me. We'll see if that idea stays in the back of mind for now, where I would really like it to stay so I can focus on the task at hand.
In closing let me say, to all those who won an award yesterday, congratulations! And to the rest of you, good job as well! You gave the others a run for their money. :)
