Newbery Challenge Update:
I did it! I completed all 91 books in the Newbery Challenge. I wrapped it up with three lovely books. I listened to Tale of Despereaux (the narrator was amazing, and I've always loved this book), and read both Dicey's Song and Missing May on Saturday.

I also read two picture books:
I won a poster of Journey from Mr. Schu - I can't wait to put it up!
