    I cannot thank you enough for your four blog posts on genrefying. I am embarking upon the process and you have saved me endless hours and potential mistakes by sharing your experience. WOW. Thank you so, so much. I have been wavering (I really worried, like your grad school cohort members, about kids narrowing their reading horizons, and about choosing which genre to put multi-genre books in) but after reading your posts I am thoroughly convinced – and committed. Thank you!
