Yippee for the award announcements! I was happy with most of the books that won, but now I have to read the Newbery winner. I started reading it months ago and I didn't like it, so I put it back on the shelf and started a new book. Now I have to find it on my bookshelf again, which is not an easy task because it is most likely in one of the piles of books in my room that don't actually fit on the shelf (Mom, can I have another book shelf? Please?). I am not so excited to read it again, but maybe the rest of the story isn't like the first few chapters. If I made it through The Dark Frigate, I can make it through Dead End in Norvelt.
Other books I still need to read: Heart and Soul, Where Things Come Back, Balloons Over Broadway, Tales for Very Picky Eaters, A Ball for Daisy, Breaking Stallin's Nose and The Notorious Benedict Arnold. There are others that I haven't read yet, but those are the ones that caught my eye. Any others I should read?
I am going to say it one more time: I am SOOOOOOOOO excited!!!! This really is the best time of the year for me :)
