ALA Winners!!!

SO excited for all the winners! I LOVE the Newbery winners!!! I LOVE the Caldecott winners!!! I LOVE the Printz winners!!!

GOING BOVINE for Printz award - did not expect that but I'm so excited for Libba!!!

I got to read GOING BOVINE four years ago when Libba was first writing it - at a super secret conference in Texas. Moi! Yes! Moi got to read Libba's first draft - and it read like my polished drafts. She's such an incredible talent. And a crazy girl, too. She had us all rolling with laughter all weekend.

Happy sighs for all the winners. A good morning. A very good morning indeed.

And no whining about getting up early from all you East Coasters. I was up at 5:30 Mountain Time to watch the live video. Then I drove hubby to his van pool for work. Yep, it's always an early morning out here in the Rio Grande valley.

Enjoy a great book today! I have lots in my stacks!

And if you missed it, check out the January issue of SPELLBINDERS down below or here at Spellbinders Blogspot for all our past issues and book talk
. I have a great Tweener Book Buzz column as well as an interview with two-time Newbery Committee member Vaunda Nelson.
