Rambling Thoughts: Some fun news this week–my name is on the 2023 Caldecott Ballot! What?!? It is an honor to just be on the ballot and a dream to someday be on a Caldecott committee. It feels weird to talk about on here, but it has been a bright spot in the last few months, and I can finally share with the world.

Note: I’m starting to write my favorites of 2020 posts. If you’ve ever spotted my recommendations on Storytime Underground’s Facebook page, you’ll notice that I sometimes struggle to limit these sorts of lists. (There will be multiple. Of course.) I’m thinking that they will go live on Sundays? We will see. I read so much this year, and there are still so many more books in my TBR piles.

Michala’s Reading

Note: It’s that time of year, can you sense a theme in my reads? Although all my Halloween picture books just came in so next week I might be listing a few stragglers that make the cut for good reads.

Note: It was Election Week 2020 combined with a few work and personal deadlines, so reading was low. I downloaded a bunch of exciting picture book eBook ARCS, so maybe I will get to those next week? It depends how many holds came in over the last few days.

Note: So…I came back to work last week to over 100 holds. These were just the picture books:

So many books. And another 25 came in yesterday. Now that I write at least brief reviews for each title on Goodreads, these take more time, so even with reading a lot of books this week, I feel like I haven’t made a dent. I always have a big stack of library books, but this feels excessive even for me.
