I am so looking forward to my first book challenge through Mother Reader--the sleepless nights, the crossed eyes, the dirty dishes, but what a great excuse to read all weekend long! I am doing some serious book cramming until the start time. I LOVE mysteries and have been reading my way through Laura Childs Tea Shop Mystery series, plus I just finished Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson. I have wanted to Mortenson's story for years and I'm so glad that I finally sat down and devoured it. I was humbled and disturbed by this story--so many mixed emotions, so much humanity, and so much politics!!
I have been honing my list for the challenge, because my list is decades long and I am part of the "so many books, so little time" club. We just had the Scholastic Book Fair at our school and, of course, I had to add more books to my stack next to my bed. I am sooooo far behind on Cooney, Korman, Clements, etc. Where should I start?
