Some Results

A Curse as Dark as Gold won the Morris -- and I must say, if I had to lose, well, I couldn't have lost to a more beautiful book!

And just saw that Melina Marchetta won the Printz for Jellicoe Road -- FANTASTIC!  Octavian Nothing #2 by Anderson, Nation by Terry Pratchett, Disreputable History of Frankie L-B by Lockhart, and Tender Morsels by Margo Lanagan are Honor Books.

Having unquestionably read both books, I wish you had won, Karen, and not just because I write a blog with you. Curse was great, and I loved it, but Graceling was tighter, a better overall piece of work.

It was nice, however, to see fantasy getting a real nod from the ALA, both here and with The Graveyard Book.

Aw, thanks! :o) I agree with the nod to fantasy, too! That was so great to see!
