  1. Tremendous choice for the gold! (And I’m pleased to see my personal favorite – Wednesday Wars – snagged a silver as well.)


  2. YAY! We have all of them.


  3. Well done! I loved both WW and Feathers, and have been waiting for the other two on hold.


  4. Thank you! Good Masters! Sweet Ladies! is a wonderful, wonderful book: I’m thrilled that it won. Now I’m off to read the Honor books. Thanks again for your work on the committee and your insightful posts along the way.


  5. I *loved* Good Masters! Sweet Ladies! Voices from a Medieval Village. It’s such a delightful book. Excellent choice ;).

    Now, I’m off to read Hugo Caberet.
