Another Reading Challenge…

….brought to me by the beautiful and amazing Nicole!

This time I’m signing up for the Decades ’08 Challenge. And because I’m cool like that, i’ve added another set of criteria – all my books are newberry winners from their respective decade.

So, here’s my list:

1920’s – The Voyages of Dr. Doolittle by Hugh Lofting

1930’s – Invisible Louisa by Cornelia Meigs

1940’s – The Twenty-One Balloons by William Pende de Bois

1950’s – The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth Speare

1960’s – Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O’Dell

1970’s – Sounder by William Armstrong

1980’s – Dear Mr. Henshaw by Beverly Cleary

1990’s – The View from Saturday by EL Konigburg

These may change depending on how hard they are to find, but at least I have them off my desk an on my blog now!


  1. The Witch of Blackbird Pond is one of my favorites. I read it in Mrs. Brown’s 5th grade class and several times since then, even this past year. Cassie wasn’t a fan, though.

  2. Wow, thanks!Oh my gosh, you have so many good books on this list! Now, I want to read Dear Mr. Henshaw again!Oh, and Cindy, I really loved The Witch of Blackbird Pond. I want to read it again!And I really want to read Island of the Blue Dolphins again.**Sigh** I love books!I’m glad you’ve joined a couple of the challenges with me! There’s another I want to join, but I am hesitating. I don’t want to overextend myself. It’s a series challenge.Although, I may already be too late to join it. I should probably stop with three.(Psst, Emily, I signed up for a drawing class. I don’t know if there will be enough people for the class to make. I’ll know next week. But I did sign up.)
