Those of us who blog for YALSA were asked to go back and tag all of our entries for the past 3 years (for me, it’s three years).’  As I went back in the archives, I found myself opening posts from other bloggers and enjoying some of the wonderful memories of YALSA events past.’  San Antonio, DC, Philly, media ward cerremonies, preconferences, podcasts:’ ‘  YALSA has been there.’  And reporting from there.’  And preserving memories from it all.’  How fortunate we are to have this resource.’  Thanks to the leaders of YALSA who maintain this blog, our listservs, and our organization, too.’ 

As we head into Spring Break,’  don’t forget to pack some books in those get-away bags.’  If you have not read all the award winners, start there.’  JELLICOE ROAD, TENDER MORSELS, OCTAVIAN NOTHING, NATION, DISREPUTABLE HISTORY OF FRANKIE LANDAU BANKS: every title offers you an incredible reading experience.’  And then there are Quick Picks, BBYA, Odyssey audiobooks, and so much more.’  I head off Saturday with three ARCs from midwinter and 4 audiobooks on the iPod and two other YA books on the Kindle.’  I plan to carve out time to read/listen to them all.
