Today, someone (and I forget who, but clearly they're fabulous) linked to David Lubar's The History of Young Adult Novels.

Fave lines: A short time after that, S. E. Hinton, realizing that she's just as qualified as Salinger to go by her initials, writes several ground breaking YA novels while still in utero. Teachers across the land respond by assigning Silas Marner.

Brilliant!

And okay, I can't not mention today's stage of the Tour de France, which was totally amazing. How someone can find the will and energy to ride up FIVE mountain climbs is beyond me.
