There are so many places online these days to find Newbery predictions that we actually talked about not running this series in January again this year. But over breakfast recently, we made the decision to do it anyway. If nothing else, it will be a sounding board for us to talk about books we have loved this past year. In addition, as we follow the other online resources for mock Newbery lists, we will talk about some of the books we have discovered from those lists that might not have come to our attention otherwise. Is there anything better than finding a great new book?!!
We have decided to run our Looking for Newbery series from January 1 - January 22 this year. Our goal is to post about one book a day that we think might be worthy of the Newbery Gold or Honor medals (OR just chat about books and characters we really, really liked!). Chances are we won't get it right, but that's okay. We can't wait to talk about books we love!!
Please join us on our Looking for Newbery expedition as we look at some of the best and the brightest books of 2011!!
