For children and young adult book awards of a different flavor, you might want to check out the cleverly titled Heavy Medal: A Mock Newbery Blog over at School Library Journal. They’ve been discussing their favorite books for the past few weeks and they announced their winners last Tuesday. You can read about them here. Their choices are appealing, but so is their sense of community (it’s one of the few places on the internet where it’s a pleasant experience reading comments) and their insight into the decision-making process. Between their recommendations and ALA’s awards, you won’t be short of a good book to read for quite a long time.
