Jill at The O.W.L. came up with a great challenge idea. We focus a lot on YA, so she's hosting a middle grade reading challenge. The goal is to read middle grade books throughout the year. I'm going to try and read ten, which is the top level for the challenge. I think I can do it, since I try to keep up with tween reads as well as YA.
I'm not sure what books I'll be adding to the challenge, but I know I'll be starting with The Blue Shoe: A tale of thievery, villainy, sorcery, and shoes by Roderick Townley. (Isn't that a great title?)
