Reading Goal

Yesterday at the library I was looking at a poster listing all the Newbery Award winning books.  Did you know they started giving the award in 1922?  That means currently there are 89 Newbery books out there.  And I have read some of them, but most I hadn't even heard of.  So I decided that I would read Newbery Award books in between my book club books.  I don't know how long it'll take me to read 89 of them (well, sometime next year it'll be 90) but I'm guessing since they're children's books they're probably not as long or difficult to read, so I'm thinking by the end of 2012 I'll have this goal completed.  Whaddya think?

I decided to start at the beginning.  The 1922 Newbery Award winner was "The Story of Mankind" by Hendrik Willem Van Loon.  I have it on-hold at the library.  I'm excited for the email telling me it's ready for pick-up so I can get it and get started on my goal!!!
