I blame this idea on my friend Marci, who came up with it as an alternative to NaNoWriMo. I came up with a good selection of children's and YA books and am pleased to announce that I have finished the first day of November by reading my first book for the month.
Frindle by Andrew Clements. It's a wonderful middle-grade book, with humor, good grownups, great rewards, and as a bonus, excellent illustrations.
