National Book Awards

Due to the temporary self imposed blog rules I had to wait to post this.  I realize I am the last one, but here are the winners of the National Book Award:


2012 NATIONAL BOOK AWARD WINNERS:

2012 NBA Winners
Young People's Literature: 
William Alexander
, Goblin Secrets
(Margaret K. McElderry Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing)
Poetry:
David FerryBewilderment: New Poems and Translations(University of Chicago Press) 
Nonfiction:
Katherine BooBehind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity

Fiction:
Louise Erdrich, The Round House (Harper, an imprint of HarperCollinsPublishers)

Congrats to the winners. 

On a personal note, I have always wanted to read Louise Erdrich and have never gotten around to her.  Between this book's great reviews and having a student this semester who loves Erdrich, I think Round House might be the title that gets me moving on that front.

I just finished "The Round House." It was my first book by Erdrich, and I really enjoyed it. I didn't think I would, but I did.

Great to hear. I just put a hold on the audio myself.
