A while back someone posted about Betsy Bird’s 100 best middle grade books challenge. Well, the votes are in and she’s working through them on her blog now. She’s up to (down to?) number eleven. I find the listing of votes received that follows each book synopsis to be almost the most interesting thing. Anyone who wants to see a compiled list should jump over to Six Boxes of Books and scroll down a post. (Thank you, Laurie Amster-Burton!)
Fascinating, Marsha. It's always insightful to get a sense of reader response to books. Right now, though, I am finding I can get so distracted from my own writing when perusing sites and blogs. It can drain my focus and confidence for the work at hand. It's best done apart from my writing time.
