Our launch of this Horn Book blog coincides with a very busy week. We are in the last throes of the November/December issue--checking edits and layout with Lolly Robinson, our designer, deciding which book reviews will be highlighted with a "star," and writing the editorial. And, of course, LOTS of busywork to avoid the last; years ago Betsy Byars said that the hardest part of writing was sitting down to the keyboard, but what she wasn't reckoning with--then--was all the temptation offered by the Internet, such as Mini Putt. Please understand that I provide that link only as an exercise of my nascent ability to construct same.
