Neil Gaiman was awarded this year's Newbery Medal for The Graveyard Book
. His reaction
to the whole thing makes for a very fun read. (If you read the blog entry make sure that you check out the tags at the bottom.)
I watched the live ALA webcast on Monday morning. When they announced his name I started jumping up and down. Good thing my co-workers already know I'm a bit weird ;)
The book is a delight to read and I highly recommend it. Neil Gaiman mentioned this morning, during his Today Show appearance, that The Graveyard Book
is set to become a movie. Should be interesting, I'm already in a tizzy waiting for Coraline
to come out.
