Or as Yogi would have said, "It ain't over till it's over." Today is Day 2 of the ALAN Workshop in Minneapolis. Even though I have been on the road since November 12, and I am more than ready to be home with this guy

I still am excited about sitting and listening to authors and educators. This morning open with Laurie Halse Anderson and Sharon Draper in conversation. Seriously? Why would I be anywhere else? Over this 2 days, I will have heard dozens of authors, received dozens of free books, and networked with colleagues. And I have had the chance to talk to others who are as passionate about YA as I am.

So, as all of you prepare to give thanks with family and friends, remember to lift up some thanks to the talented folks who work to bring the joy and love of reading to you and to your kids.
