She'll Probably Finish Before I Do

For a couple of years, I've been working my way through the Newbery books. That project has trailed off in recent months, but I'm planning to get back on track when my involvement with the Jefferson Cup is finished. I've "discovered" some wonderful reads (Strawberry Girl , which was displayed in our Newbery display and is now checked out...yay! and Thimble Summer) and some that I really struggled to finish (Secret of the Andes). I'm also including as many Honor books as I can (some of the earliest Honor books are difficult to find).

In the meantime, check out fourth grader Laura's blog, in which she chronicles her own Newbery project (she's sticking strictly to the medalists). Her goal is to finish the books before she goes to middle school (5th grade in her district). I'm impressed that she liked The White Stag (I didn't, but it was short)! Way to go, Laura!

I might have liked The White Stag because I finished it in an afternoon and I was hungry for a book that day. Brace yourself for The Dark Frigate-- ugggg :(. I have 3 to go. Thanks for writing about my blog!

Hello, Laura! Thanks for commenting on my blog. I've actually been avoiding The Dark Frigate, but eventually, I'll have to tackle it!
