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

  1. I'm glad you joined my challenge! It's going to be fun to read and reread some Newberry books


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
