2011 National Book Award Finalists

Here they are!

Don’t you love how there are SIX finalists for Young People’s Literature?  There are so many great books out there for young readers.  I’m very excited about Gary Schmidt’s OKAY FOR NOW — fantastic book!  I blogged about it here.  I’m afraid I haven’t read the others — yet — but they are now, of course, on my TBR list.  Congratulations to all the nominees!
