Wow, I thought we had it tough.

Thanks to Gail Gauthier, I discovered this fascinating post that Linda Sue Park wrote about being a panelist for the National Book Award for Young People’s Literature. I found it especially interesting, since I’m involved in reading books for the Cybils Awards. But our 87 books my category seems paltry compared to the 280 books Park and the other panelists had to read for the National Book Awards. And they read them all!
