    Ahhhh, very cool – off to a good start!

  2. Yeah! LOVE Origami Yoda — perhaps he’ll help Tom make his decision?

  3. Thrilling! I think I might have scared him a little at ALA over my unseemly enthusiasm at discovering that QWICK PICK SOCIETY is making a return. AND THERE WILL BE SEQUELS!

    We can’t wait for all of you to read the judges’ statements and find out their choices. Only six weeks when 2014 BoB Matches start! If you have not read all the books, there is still time! And encourage your students and young library patrons to read and follow along. Even if they only read a few books on the list, they will find the analysis and decisions enthralling.

  5. Kristine A says:

    I lived in Cburg for two years and never knew Angleberger was there!? For shame! I mean I saw him have I author visit at the library, but didn’t know I could have ran into him at Kroger! 🙂 looking forward to his and other judges’ picks!

  6. He of the ridiculously awesome titles! Excellent!

  7. Wait, what!? QWICK PICK is coming back? Awesome!

  8. Yay! I do hope Origami Yoda will make the final decision.
