Twas the Night Before the YMAs… January 26, 2014Posted by ccbooks in Nerd Line.
Just a few thoughts before I get up insanely early (well, for me) to hear the results of the ALA Youth Media Awards. I have to work tomorrow too, which means that I hopefully will be able to make a display of award winners–always assuming we have them in stock! My final ponderings…
-I would not be sad to see The True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp or The Thing About Luck win the Newbery.
-I REALLY hope that Boxers & Saints gets recognized. Somehow.
-If something out of left field wins big, I can only hope that DC Public Library will have it on the shelf.
-Is it too much to hope that the winner of the Edwards is another fantasy author?
-If The Kingdom of Little Wounds gets recognized, I guess I actually have to go back and try to finish it. Sigh.
-I will probably be happy no matter what with the results of the Caldecott. Well, unless Journey gets left out entirely. But I don’t think that will happen!
