One year ago today I wrote my first post on this blog. I wish I had readers to celebrate with, but I'm sure that when I went on hiatus this summer, I lost many. When one has a blog, one must never, never just stop posting, because people vanish. Actually, I'm not sure everyone has disappeared, but it would stand to reason. As soon as I can get Blogger to tell me why my comments are not appearing, I'll get an idea if anyone is still visiting.

So, in book news, I can report that Judy Blume is winning a lifetime achievement award from the National Book Foundation. I can't believe I've never read Are You There, God? It's Me Margaret. I remember distinctly when it came out and how Blume was assailed for being unliterary. Yet today her book is considered by the loftiest critics and specialists who write about children's lit to be one of the most esteemed modern classics. I find that so interesting, that opinion has changed so drastically over the course of 25, or is it 30 years since it was published? I ought to go look it up right now, but I've got to do the dinner thing and I still have a bed to make up.
