More dirt on Samurai's BBYA selection

>> Thursday, January 25, 2007

LibrariAnne, a hard rockin' librarian from Canton, Michigan, reports on her blog that Samurai Shortstop was one of only three books out of the 232 nominated titles to be unanimously approved by the committee! Here's what she had to say:

[A]t the final vote, titles must have 9 yes votes or more to be added to the list. As of tonight's straw poll, this would include 68 titles (out of 232 on the list) (this isn't counting any potential Michael L. Printz Award and Honor titles, which are automatically added to the list). There were only three titles which received 14 yes votes and 0 no votes in tonight's straw poll: The 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation, The Book Thief by Marcus Zuzak, and Samurai Shortstop by Alan Gratz.
