Weekly Geeks 2010-2 Award Time! Wrap Up!

Last week Becky asked for posts about the book award winners -- predictions, analysis, lists, or reviewing award winning books.

Sherry looked ahead and tried to predict the winners of the Printz Prize (a literary award for YA literature). Similarly, Jen did some predictions for many of the ALA Youth Media Awards.

Puss Reboots shared that she's a Cybils Award judge for the graphic novels (can I tell you how jealous I am?). She couldn't tell us winners just yet, but she did show the book she's getting to consider.

Laura, a new participant in Weekly Geeks, looked at award winners from her childhood.

Becky got into things, by posting lists of all the major winners on Monday with some of her own impression of the picks. Keeping with the YA themes, Suey looked at winners for both the Newbery Award and Printz Prize, plus pointed out some on-going challenges for both awards.

Bookwormans did a spotlight on previous Newbery Award winning books including a couple of my favorites, From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler and Number the Stars. KT also highlighted some of her favorite Newbery Award winners including and The Westing Game and Julie of the Wolves.
