2012 was a great year for this blog thanks to all of you who visit!  So thank you for making my time spent here so much fun and so worthwhile.  Here are the top posts of the year thanks to you!  Now, my blog does see a lot of action on older posts too, but I kept those out of this list.  My post with the most hits for the year is actually one from 2011, my review of Pie by Sarah Weeks.

I find it intriguing that there are both reviews and award announcements in the top 10 of 2012, no teen novels, and a nice mix of picture book and children’s books.  And I am very proud of all of you for clicking through to books that have characters of different races and books that originated in different countries.  You are clearly an astute group of readers!
