    Blogpost: tbh I find it difficult to remember blogposts, apart from my own that is 😉 . Well, okay, this post by Julia Serano was pretty good I thought: http://juliaserano.blogspot.com/2011/09/transsexual-versus-transgender.html

    Book: “Persistence: All Ways Butch and Femme” – ed. Ivan Coyote & Zena Sharman (Arsenal Pulp Press 2011)

    Writer: Jon-Jon Goulian (author of “The Man in the Gray Flannel Skirt”)

    I would like to nominate this blog post – for the wacky-wacky award.

    Hope such an award exists!

    Blogpost of the year: Biblioklept; http://biblioklept.org/

    Book of the year: Saul Bellow: Letters, edited by Benjamin Taylor. It was published last year, but I bought it in 2011.

    Writer of the year: Even though 1Q84 is probably one of the quasi-disappointing novels of

    the year, Haruki Murakami is still one of the most talked about writers in 2011.
