The Newbery Reading Challenge 2014
Hosted by: Julie @ Smiling Shelves
Dates: January 1 - December 31, 2014
This one really looks like a lot of fun. I've always wanted to read more of the Newbery Medal winners and honor books - and this challenge even allows you to read Caldecott Medal winners, too. And since re-reads are also allowed, I might even revisit some of my childhood favorites. The challenge works on a point system, with a different number of points given for Newbery winners, Newbery honor books, and Caldecott winners; and there are five different levels of participation to choose from.
For all the guidelines, see the challenge announcement/sign-up page HERE. (And be sure to read Julie's explanation for those "smiling shelves"!)
I'll be signing up at the first level, L'Engle - so I'll be gathering a total of 15-29 points. Haven't made a list of potential books yet, but during the year I'll be tracking my reading progress over on my challenge blog, HERE.
