The Most Wonderful Time of Year....

I have been singing that song around my house this week, I love "book award seasons"!  This is because I LOVE book and I am super excited when great books get recognized and get awards.  The other reason I love this time of year is that other people LOVE it too.  I have been reading blogs of other Newbery guessers (big thanks to Heavy Medal for posting the results before bedtime)and seeing authors get excited about all the buzz.  It is so exciting I can hardly stand it.  Can you imagine what it would be like to get THE call tomorrow?  Or to be the ones making the call (yes, I am still dreaming of being on the committee).  To get to do something that fun in the world of books, too cool.  So, tomorrow if you listen extra hard you will be able to hear me cheering from Indiana. 


  1. Cant wait for tomorrow morning! I too am hoping it will be One Crazy Summer.

  2. What's more exciting than Christmas?
