This week, they've been announcing the 2009 Nobel Prize winners. Herta Mueller, a German author, won the Literature prize, making her the 12th woman in history to win the title.


She's done a lot of writing about the hardships and humiliations of life in an oppressive dictatorship.

Her book sales for The Land of Green Plums climbed from 78,235th to seventh place on Amazon, making it into the best seller list.

I'm sure many of you heard the buzz about President Obama winning the creme de la creme one, the Nobel Peace Prize.

What do you think about these winners? Do you think they deserve the prize?
