Here is hoping that every American who can vote, does vote. Even (or especially) if you're in an area effected by Sandy, please take the time to vote.
After you have, here's something else you can lend your voice to: The Goodreads Choice Awards. I'm flumoxed yet very happy to say that you can split the vote between three of my offerings this year, THE DUCKLING GETS A COOKIE, LISTEN TO MY TRUMPET, & GOLDILOCKS AND THE THREE DINOSAURS. If you're a Goodreads reader and you liked any of these books, go vote for them (after you've voted for real)!
