  1. Yeah, I read the Gravyard book and I agree, tis excellent. Read Savvy as well, and it was definitely a contender as well as tender. I also noticed that those two were books you checked out when you were down here. In the words of your husband "When she goes to the library, she doesn't mess around."

    Good Jorb.

  2. I had this really long, cool comment ready to post and Blogger died on me. Oh well.

    Anyway, I'm glad Neil Gaiman won the Newbury. I've never read any of his novels (yet), but his children's book are super cute.
