[Update–the link was to a German blog titled “Boston Globe Horn Book Awards” filled with English words and sentences strung together in a way that occasionally made sense but more often were simply madly stream-of-consciousness insanity. Apparently now it takes you to another site. This is the kind of spamming I don’t understand. I mean, the gold-farm people want your money but this didn’t have anything like that.]
