Newbery Award Reading Challenge

The Newbery Reading Challenge is being hosted by Smiling Shelves. The goal is to read Newbery Award Winners or Honor Books.  

Basic Details
Jan 1, 2014 - Dec 31, 2014

Crossover allowed.  Reviews encouraged but not necessary. There will be a monthly link-up for reviews. Any format is acceptable. 

Each book you read is worth points. You get:
  • 3 points for a Newbery Medal Winner
  • 2 points for a Newbery Honor Book
  • 1 point for a Caldecott Medal Winner (Gotta give the picture books some love, too.)
In addition to that, you pick a level to aim for:
  • L'Engle: 15 - 29 points
  • Spinelli: 30 - 44 points
  • Avi: 45 - 59 points
  • Lowry: 60 - 74 points
  • Konigsburg: 75+ points

There will be mini challenges every couple of months.

I am just going for the L'engle Level.  We are having an "I love Caldecott" month next month at school though, so may be able to rack up some onesie points there. 

1. The Witch of Blackbird Pond - Newbery Medal Winner  -  +3 points
2. The One and Only Ivan - Newbery Medal Winner - +3 points
