Our second reading list will be coming out soon

It's almost time -- believe it or not -- for us to post our second reading list for the ACPL Mock Newbery 2009. I'm looking for your suggestions, help, and guidance! What have you read that you think is a strong Newbery contender this year? Which books do you think would be great fun to discuss at our Mock Newbery discussion in January 2009?

I've been looking at some other blogs discussing Newbery 2009; here are three which list some interesting Newbery ideas:
  • Fuse 8 has a great, annotated, "Summer Edition" of Newbery preditions
  • The Anokaberry 2009 Short List was posted at the beginning of Summer. I can't wait to see if posts another list this Fall!
  • The Wake County Public Library encourages kids to participate in the Eva Perry Mock Newbery Book Club; check out their first short list of the year.
If you want to suggest a book for discussion on this blog, just email the title or post your suggestion in the comments section here.

If you have something to say about a title already on this blog, just add your comments to the blog post for that title. A complete list of all the titles under discussion should be over there -->
... on the the right.

Hi Readers -- thanks for the link up to Anokaberry's Short List #2! We are stunned by the quantity of good and great stuff we have read! I would so love to round-table with our other mock-newberriers...Remember this is our very first year and we are figuring out the details as we go. Keep in touch.
