If I were a good book blogger, I would blog heavily on topics such as the ALA book awards. Also, I would have blogged about them a couple of weeks ago, when they were topical.
Here is my question: Does anyone besides librarians (and possibly booksellers) care about these awards? Maybe just the Newberry and the Caldecott? I feel like if anything, a Printz seal on the cover of a book (awarded for fanciness in writing for teens) is the kiss of death for getting a teenager interested in a book.
