Alex Awards

Lots of posts today because of the ALA Midwinter meeting. Another award that I keep my eyes on is the Alex Award, given by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the ALA. The Alex Awards were created to recognize that many teens enjoy and often prefer books written for adults, and to assist librarians in recommending adult books that appeal to teens.

The ten winners are listed here.

This list also includes a few of the books which I listed as my favorites of 2008.
