Newbery Project

This Book Blog is going to take a new journey. We’ll still be talking about books, of course! But writing about a book every day was clearly not sustainable (as evidenced by almost a year’s absence). Instead we’ll see a more relaxed updating schedule.

We’re also embarking on a new endeavor! I have challenged myself to read every Newbery Winner and Honor book! If I read two Newbery books every month, then it’ll only take me 20+ years to finish them all! Consequently there will be plenty of discussion of older titles that have won these two awards. Technically books that won the Newbery Honor before 1971 were retroactively given the award. Previous to that year they were called “runners up” for the actual Medal.
