Yes, Jenni@firstname.lastname@example.org has honored me with The Booker Award – for which I am grateful. The truth of the matter is any award that acknowledges that I live in my own world is very cool. It’s ok though – they know me here.

A Wrinkle In Time – Madeline Engle
To Kill A Mockingbird – Harper Lee
The Catcher In The Rye – J.D. Salinger
Breakfast At Tiffany’s – Truman Capote
The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe – C.S. Lewis

Now to pay this forward I nominate others who undoubtedly have favorites we may want to add to our cosmic library (for a library of outstanding books would surely be cosmic)..I’m tapping on the libraries of:
