Newbery Book Give Away



A few months ago I set a personal reading goal to read all the Newbery Medal and Honor books. This is something that will take me years to accomplish but I recently met a mini-goal towards the ultimate goal by reading all the books from 2007. To celebrate I am giving away a copy of my favorites from 2007.
The winner in 2007 was the Higher Power of Lucky by Susan Patron. I read this before I started blogging about the books I read so I don't have anything written up about it. I didn't care for it, I will say that much. In fact, it was my least favorite of the 2007 Newbery books. The honor books were Penny from Heaven by Jennifer L. Holm, Hattie Big Sky by Kirby Larson and Rules by Cynthia Lord.
I loved Hattie Big Sky and Rules. I tried to pick just one but couldn't decide which I liked better so I am giving a way a copy of each! Here is the bonus: Cynthia Lord was kind enough to send me a signed copy of Rules to give away so one lucky winner will be getting an autographed book.

Great books up for grabs! I read library copies of both of these and would love to win either one, although I liked Hattie Big Sky best.

I'm reading my way through the Newbery's as well and it's been great fun!
