Yeah, I’ve been negligent in the writing department, blogging included. Stopping in to congratulate the National Book Award winners, just posted at Omnivoracious:
- Fiction: Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann
- Nonfiction: The First Tycoon: The Epic Life of Cornelius Vanderbilt by T.J. Stiles
- Poetry: Transcendental Studies: A Trilogy by Keith Waldrop
- Young People’s Literature: Claudette Colvin: Twice Toward Justice by Phillip Hoose
And because she had such an impact on the world of publishing, I feel compelled to post that Oprah is apparently calling it quits in 2011, for real this time.
Now, I have to figure out how to get my discipline back. It’s become distressingly elusive.
