I picked up this little gem while I was at Harper’s Fall Ball, started skimming through and reading some the selected “book reports” that night and loved it right away. It’s all about exploring some of the older classics of teen literature. I knew that I would want to go back and read some of these old stories to remember what I thought about them as teen and see how that might have changed now that I am adult. Julie from Booking Mama has come up with the perfect way to do this! See the full challenge details at her post on the Shelf Discovery Challenge.
The Shelf Discovery Challenge will run for six months (November 1, 2009 – April 30, 2010). To join me in this challenge, all you need to do is grab a copy of SHELF DISCOVERY and pick out what six books you want to read (of course, you can read more than six!) Then, after you read a book, just write a “book report” to share your thoughts with others!
Grab the challenge buttons at the top of this page and write a post detailing what six Shelf Discovery books you are going to read within the next six months (you always have the option to change your original list — I’m flexible like that!) Once you have posted your Shelf Discovery challenge post, come back to this post and click on Mr. Linky. Please leave your name and link directly to your introductory post (not just to your blog’s home page.) If you don’t have a blog, no worries — you can just leave a comment on this post telling me you want to participate.
Has changed a dozen times already, but as of right now I’m reading:
- Julie of the Wolves, Jean Craighead George
- Island of The Blue Dolphins, Scott O’Dell
- The Witch of Blackbird Pond, Elizabeth George Speare
- Stranger With My Face, by Lois Duncan
- An Old Fashioned Girl, by Louisa May Alcott
- Caroline, Willo Davis Roberts

Great idea Julie! I’m looking forward to it.
