I'm basically just posting to say that I'm pretty happy with the Printz Awards this year - - - unlike last year where I really barely even liked the books, let alone thought they should get awards. I couldn't even get through White Darkness. Of course, I'm happiest about TDHOFL-B, since I love it so much.
The Nation: This is the only one I maybe wish wasn't on the list. I haven't read it, but (a) the cover is pretty bad and no one will pick it up, and (b) I've convinced a couple of my good readers who like my suggestions to read it and neither of them could finish the book.
