    >Love it!!! Makes it feel more magazine-ish and less journal-ish. I wonder if you have a lot of authors as subscribers, or is it more librarians? Because, as an author, I would love to see more articles on craft (like Kristin Cashore's terrific piece) and more reviews.

  2. >Simple and clean. Easy on the eyes. Ample white space to allow the illustrations to shine. I like it!
