Adventures in Reading

Bookends: Oh the challenges!

I’ve given up on the Newbery Project. I read the first few pages of the Dark Frigate by C.B. Hawes and proceeded to moan and groan. After looking over the Newbery list, as commendable as it may be, I realized there wasn’t really anything that I wanted to read or that I had read and been terribly impressed with. Saying this, I feel like I’m tripping a small child, but I might return to another children’s award reading challenge like the Amelia Bloomer Project.

I would like to thank and congratulate Heather over at BookAddiction for being my first participant of my Bookmooch via Blogging. If you haven’t heard previously, I end my book comments with a conclusion that includes the books I’m adding to Bookmooch. If the book interests you, leave a comment with your Bookmooch username and I’ll reserve the book for you.

I’ve also been finding some discrepancies within my “Year in Review 2008” list, which is a little annoying and goes to show my poor recording skills. (Or just poor recollection: I’ve just spent the last 30-minutes hunting my misplaced copy of Dracula!)
