Hope you had fun and snow

Thanks to everyone who came to our video game event, yesterday. We had a great time and hope you did, too!
Also, if you’re anxious for some snow, go to google and type “let it snow” and watch what happens. (Or visit this site if you’re not using Firefox or Google Chrome)

Happy New Year!

NPR’s Top YA Fiction

A friend of mine posted on Facebook that she was getting a little tired of Best of the year booklists and there is a part of me that agrees with her. It’s always frustrating when you read a wonderful new book and not one person compiling a best of list agrees with you. However, there is always a small amount of vindication when you see that title you love on several of those lists. (Or maybe you feel unoriginal because you like something that everyone else likes!)
In that vein, here is another Best of YA Fiction list, this time from National Public Radio.

Happy reading!
