Book Awards!

Today is the day that many librarians absolutely live for: ALA book award announcements. I have to admit that I don't play the whole guessing game, following who might be up for awards, but I do enjoy learning who the winners are. This year I've only heard of a few of the titles, and I'm pretty excited to find and read the rest:
