And the winners are...

My sources just texted me (thanks, J*!) and I'm happy to announce the winners of the 2009 Monarch Award and Rebecca Caudill Award.

The 2009 Monarch winner is Once Upon a Cool Motorcycle Dude!

The 2009 Rebecca Caudill winner is The Lightning Thief!

Congratulations to the winners!!

(No word yet on the runners up, but I'll post that info as soon as I have it!)

ETA (11:03p) - The runners up for the Monarch are Skippyjon Jones in 2nd place and Superhero ABC in third place. The runners up for the Caudill are The Invention of Hugo Cabret in 2nd place and Shug in 3rd place.

*It was literally perfect timing. I had just turned to N and asked when she thought they would announce the winners. And she said that it would probably be a little bit later. And I said "I want to know now!" and like 60 seconds later I got the text. We are obviously made of win.

How many times can I use the word "winner" in this post? (Yes, I'm commenting on myself...)

YAY for all the Caudill winners. They're all great books.

And oh, the memories. I have a sister 10 years younger who was required to read 2 of the Caudill nominees for school one year. Thankfully, she liked the books I helped her pick and my 100% success rate with her and reader's advisory stands.

Do you know that A Night Without Stars is one of my absolute favorite books from my younger days???? I never even know another soul had heard of it!!!
