Julie, the inimitable Booking Mama, is hosting the Shelf Discovery Challenge which sounds like a lot of fun.
This challenge is named for the book Shelf Discovery: The Teen Classics We Never Stopped Reading by Lizzie Skurnick, which features books and authors that defined the youth of so many bloggers – books like Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret, The Good Earth, and Jacob Have I Loved.
Personally, I missed that aspect of childhood – I read mostly biographies, Nancy Drew books, and The Farmer’s Almanac. So I am interested in this challenge to become familiar with the books which played such a big role in so many people’s lives!
I haven’t selected my six books yet because I’m waiting for our periodic library sale in November. They usually have a nice array of dog-eared YA classics, and it will be fun to pick some out. If you want to join in this challenge, please stop over at Julie’s blog and sign up. She’ll be adding little incentives for those who join like periodic mini-challenges.
