Last year I kicked off the Newbery Through the Decades very inauspiciously, and I’m afraid I must confess I’ve done it again. Last January, it was sickness that prevented my reading as much as I wanted; this January I’ve read plenty but have had some constraints on what I’ve read due to my role as a Cybils round 2 judge. Also, I must be honest: I have a hard time with this 1920s list. Most titles aren’t very appealing to me, probably because I don’t encounter many reviews of them. (Which is one reason I want to do this challenge. . . !) Also, it has been hard for me to get my hands on some of them.
Anyway, I am about one-third of the way through Smoky the Cowhorse by Will James, a title that I didn’t plan to read but the one I resorted to when I couldn’t easily locate the titles I wanted to read. I do intend to finish it and review it here soon.
