This also means I do not have time for an original blog post. However, I do have something to point you to today. Yesterday's winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction was The Orphan Master's Son by Adam Johnson, one of my favorite reads of 2012.
Two finalists up were also cited, one of which was another one of my favorite reads of 2012, The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey.

I cannot say enough good things about Johnson's novel in particular. It is a book that has stayed with me long after I finished it. I listened to it, and highly recommend the audio too.
