You may have noticed that a couple of weeks ago, the American Library Association announced this year's winners of the Newbery Medal and Honor Books. Here they are, in all their newly-awarded glory:
2014 Newbery Medal winner: Flora & Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures by Kate DiCamillo
2014 Honor Books
To celebrate, I'm introducing the first mini-challenge as part of the 2014 Newbery Reading Challenge. If you remember from the rules, each medal winner you read gets 3 points, and each honor book you read gets 2 points. Exception: the 2014 winners! If you read any of this year's winners, you get an extra bonus point for that book. So reading Flora & Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo would earn you 4 points towards your challenge. Reading any of the honor books would earn you 3 points each.
Stay tuned for future mini-challenges in order to earn some more bonus points. The next one will be posted April 3. Also, there is now a page at the top of the blog where you can post your reviews. Start linking up! And enjoy your reading!
My name is Julie, and I own a lot of books. As in, they are stacked on the floor because I've run out of room on the shelves. And those shelves? There are so many books on them that they smile -- not sag; smile. This blog will cover book reviews and all manner of other bookish things.
