What is Anokaberry Annotated?
Anokaberry posted the Best Books of 2008 for Middle Grade Readers on January 9, 2009. Anokaberry is now Anokaberry Annotated. This new aspect of the blog means an accent, a tone, a personal, distinct voice may surface. This blog continues to present books published in the current year for middle grade readers but will also have editorial comment and attitude. Look for more ordered labeling for the coming year -- most obviously labeling that denotes genre: realistic fiction, historical fiction, science fiction, biography, poetry and verse, folklore/folktale and fantasy. Next January's list will honor books of excellence by genre.
