I recently saw a post on School Library Journal’s website about the top 100 children’s novels. I began to look at the list and realized I have only read two of the 100 titles. Yeah, I’m ashamed to say I work at a library in the children’s area. So, I have decided to challenge myself to read all 100 books along with my fellow co-worker and awesome friend, Seth. We haven’t really set a time line yet due to the fact that I don’t have a lot of free time with a toddler running around. On a side note, she got very upset when I was trying to read Charlotte’s Web last night. So upset that she sat on top of my chest while I was lying on the bed so I could not see the pages. Anways, I finished the book today! Go me! It of course is both a sad and amazing story about a spider and a pig who find friendship. Hey Seth, how far along are you? Only 99 more to go! On to, A Wrinkle in Time.
