Thanks for taking a break from your new gadgets and gizmos to join me for a day-after-Christmas YA Onscreen! Now we enter that vague week between Christmas and New Year’s where countdown lists reign supreme and you finally have to pin down your NYE plans. It was a fairly quiet news weekend, but let’s see what we can scrounge up:

That's it for me! I'm heading outside to try to work off the metric ton of Christmas cookies I've eaten over the last four days...
