Almost exactly a year ago today (two days off--it was November 27th) I began this project to read all of the Newbery Award and Honor books. I was taking a certain writing course, and that course recommended books that were on the Newbery list as good literature to read. I looked up the list, and for some strange reason, thought "Hey, I should read all of these!"
Then, I suppose inspired by the vast expanse of an empty five-in-one notebook, I thought, "Hey, I should write down a summary and some thoughts about each book I read!"
So I started reading. A little ways into the project, I actually stopped to count how many books were on the list. 366. Gulp.
So fast forward to now, a year later. I've read 69 books, and found some really cool ones. And I had this huge book of all these summaries I've written for them. So I figured as long as I was going to write them all out anyway, I might as well share some of my thoughts in the form of a blog.
Thus the start of this blog.
