As you putter around the blogs today, you'll find that nobody knew about the Newbery winner. Well, except for Kelly, who actually reviewed it. But otherwise, I've found a collective "huh?" I, among others, also noticed the girl books thing. Yes, odd.

The John Green video was so awesome. When I saw you hadn't posted about it yesterday, I was so close to sending you an email just to make absolutely certain that you didn't miss it. I know you're a fan.


We were talking about the girl protagonist thing (when I stopped by work yesterday simply to gossip about the various awards). I'm in the same ignorant boat about Lucky, but it is nice to see books slightly towards the younger end winning - I felt like Criss-Cross was really pushing it last year. I think you'll like American Born Chinese if you can ever get your hands on it.

I really have to get around to reading Octavian Nothing.

For the Printz, there is only one girl protagonist (Liesl, The Book Thief, and arguably Death is the real main character there.) ABC: guys (and Monkey King!) main character; Octavian: guys; Katherines: guys; Surrender: guys.

Holly Black

A bunch of books that DIDN'T include The Privilege of the Freaking Sword. What's up with that, guys? Feeling a bit peeved here.
