Exciting News – LA Times Book Prize!

Lynn: I have awesome news to share on this Memorial Day. Cindy has just been appointed as one of the three judges on the Young Adult Literature Panel for the Los Angeles Book Prize. She will serve for 2010 and 2011.

Huzzah! I am really excited! Cindy will be awesome and my book-nagging can kick into top speed. Let’s see, where is that list of books I’ve been raving about?

    That’s awesome, Cindy! Congratulations!

    I hope you will both be able to continue blogging after you start your new committees – Bookends is one of my first stops every day! Either way, the committees are lucky to have you!

    • Laura,

      Thank you for the kind words about Bookends! We are definitely planning to keep on blogging but we are thinking about how best to handle it. Cindy’s committee is under way but mine doesn’t start till January.
