Saying Goodbye To My Newbery Year
This past year (and a half) has been filled with more books than you can possibly imagine. I was reading with a critical eye, thinking and re-thinking, reading and re-reading.
I am particularly proud of our committee and our hard work. It does seem a little strange to be reading for the sake of it, but I am pleased that this blog will be going back to its old format. I will be keeping up with the tween interviews and the "on the clip-board" posts, but they will be interspersed with book recommendations!
