And the long listed books are announced!  
The only bright spot in a day where United Airlines sought to make me behave unprofessionally (and darn near succeeded) was the announcement of the 10 books on the long list for the National Book Award for Young People's Literature. I rose early on the west coast so I could see the announcement go out into the universe. A lovely, accepting, approving universe thus far. Thanks to all those who posted the information out for all to see. And in case you were asleep or trapped somewhere by United Airlines and one of its many failures, here is the link: http://www.nationalbook.org/nba2015.html#.Vfg4J03luM8.
