The judges selected two honor books in each category:
Fiction and Poetry:

Sorry, man. Had to happen with at least one big award. Don't worry. I can't think of the last time the big winner of the Boston Horn Book Award actually won the Newbery as well. Can anybody?m

Fuse,

Regarding Mr. Sutton's blog, did you see the stranger than strange commentary going on in response to the awards?

Oh, sweet Lord above. That is fascinating. I hadn't checked out the comments until you mentioned it. It really makes one (one = me)appreciate the low-low-key debates we have here at my blog. I am such a wimp.

Woah... are you K.T. Horning???? Call me slow, but if so I LOVE your books. Studied them in grad school, I did.

Man, Fusie, makes me want to get in on that action. Anonymously, of course.
