Congratulations to bookstores Book Beat (in my own state of Michigan) and Monkey See, Monkey Do (in Clarence, NY) for winning the Women's National Book Association's Lucile Micheels Pannell Awards. The awards (one to a general bookstore, one to a children's specialty bookstore) are given to bookstores "that excel at inspiring the interest of young people in books and reading."
If you live near either of these bookstores, be sure to pop in and congratulate them. (And buy a book of your choice while you're there, too! :)
