Oooh, how exciting. I'd vote for you, but I'm not a librarian. I wish you luck, though!

If you get on the Printz committee, do I have to genuflect whenever I visit your blog? Not that I don't already but it may call for an additional flourish. Maybe a few bars of "Under Your Spell?"

Way cool! I hope that you get picked! But I don't think I'll genuflect.... Probably. But seriously, I think it's awesome.
