My progress was severely hindered by the exciting and ultimately heartbreaking MSU game this evening, but I’m only about 40 pages from the end of The Wild Things. It will most likely be the last book I finish during the read-a-thon. I’ll start The Mating Season, but am unlikely to finish before needing to finally sleep.
This next challenge (and possibly my last challenge tonight) is the Give Me Five mini-challenge hosted by Infant Bibliophile.
“Go to your blog and post a list of five favorite children’s books. They don’t have to be THE five end-all-be-all of your favorites, because then you’ll just agonize over which ones to pick, and we want this to be easy. Just list five off the top of your head that you enjoyed as a child, or that your children enjoy.”
I love children’s books, and still read them frequently. Five of my favorites:
1. The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster
2. A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle
3. Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery
4. The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall
5. Matilda by Roald Dahl
