Imagine blue skies, sunshine, and spring-like weather. This is Philly in January? Yep, that is what today is shaping up to be here at the start of ALA Midwinter. Winter will return soon, but I plan to enjoy wwalking around a bit today to see the city. The last time I was here for ALA, I never had the chance to see much of this historic place. I vowed this year to take that extra day to see what is here besides the convention center.

After today, the work begins for me on the final stages of the Odyssey Committee. Our committee has many hours ahead of it as wel deliberate on this first award. Ditto for Printz and Edwards and ALEX, too. So, be sure to log on Monday to see the fruits of all this labor. You can join us on the web, have the winners texted to your cell phone, or read my blog.

Registration is now underway for annual. Hurry to reserve hotel space as they are going quickly.
