Linda Sue Park On Her Experience With The National Book Award

Thanks to bookshelves of doom for the link to Linda Sue Park's journal entry regarding her experience as a judge for the National Book Award for Young People's Literature. Park and the other judges read 280 submissions. She says the first cut down to 50 books wasn't very difficult. One of the two major faults, in her opinion was "YA novels with weak story lines and protagonists whose whiny voices were indistinct from one another (LOTS of those)."

I didn't read the 280 books Park read, but generally speaking, I think she has a very valid point.

The game has a lot of rf gold, as long as you join to play this game you will get
them. you should try your best to earn as much rf online gold as you can, so you are strong and no one can
fight you. you can get a lot of rf money in the game, so many other players want to play with you together. As long as you have the rf cp you will be strong and you can go to kill the monsters to upgrade alone. i like the cheap rf gold very much.
