While I was on my blog break, I gathered a little pile of videos/pictures I wanted to show all of you. They don’t really go together, but they don’t really go with anything else I have planned, either, so I thought I’d throw them at you all at once. Ready for some randomness?
Here, via my lovely pal and fellow writer Tui Sutherland, is How to Wrap a Cat.
(When I was little, one of our cats was just that mellow. She was the World’s Best Cat.)
Next up: my favorite Itzhak Perlman segment from Sesame Street (I did warn you these were a little random, right?):
Finally: a piece of mail. So, there’s a German website called LovelyBooks that’s a community for readers and book lovers, not unlike goodreads. LovelyBooks has a book contest called the Reader’s Prize; the finalists are nominated, and the winners are chosen, by readers. My book, Die Beschenkte (that is, Graceling), won the 2009 silver medal in the category of literature! See what I got in the mail?
In case you can’t read it, it says “Leserpreis 2009.” All the other winners are here.
Thank you so much to my German readers — you’ve touched my heart ♥!
That’s all, folks. ALA Midwinter is in town this weekend. If you have a question you’d like to hear me (or Mitali Perkins, Lois Lowry, or M.T. Anderson) answer at the Horn Book booth on Saturday, go tell Roger Sutton. I have some serious authorly shenanigans planned for the long weekend (about which I will blog, should they prove blog-worthy), so my Monday post might turn into a Tuesday post.
Happy weekend, everyone!
