Newbery Medal Challenge

For these past few months, I’ve been collecting Newbery Medal Books from Booksale. It started when a friend of mine from goodreads, Sheryl told me what the Newbery award is all about and she told me that one my favorite book (and movie) Bridge to Terabithia is a recipient of this prestigious award for children’s literature. And so I started reading more newbery books and I always find them delightful to read.

I was surprised when  I found out that in just four months, I was able to collect about 15 Newbery Books and I plan to read them  this year so now I decided to take it as a challenge to finish all of them this year.

  1. From your list, I only read Holes, and loved it! But I’ve also read Bridge to Terabithia a couple of years back. 🙂 Good luck on your challenge, Cary! 🙂
