I told Mom tonight that I’m reading The Memory of Earth by Orson Scott Card. I have thoroughly enjoyed Ender’s Game and that series of books and now with The Memory of Earth I’ve begun the Homecoming series.

Mom told me that he’s been awarded with the 2008 YALSA Margaret A. Edwards Award for Lifetime Contribution to Young Adult Literature for his body of work, namely Ender’s Game and Ender’s Shadow. He will be awarded by the American Library Association in June.

Congratulations, Mr. Orson Scott Card. Your ability to create different worlds is amazing. I have loved having those characters and their environments in my imagination.
