  1. Wow! I feel a whole lot better about my guessing 5 correctly now. Fun contest! Congratulations to Kelly and Doret!

  2. I know! I feel pretty good about the 4 I got right (Stine, Shlitz, Stork, and Lin) however I’m kicking myself for taking Susan Patron, Richard Peck, and Adam Rex off my list! They were on a “rough draft” and I took them off by the time I posted. Would’ve put me at 7!!!

    Coulda shoulda woulda . . . congrats to Kelly and Doret!

  3. Oops! Looks like I lied– I only got the same 4 right as Mr. H. I must have been counting someone I’d thought about putting on the list, and then forgot when I actually posted.

  4. Such awesome prizes! I only have 3 more books to read!! Almost ready!

  5. Thanks Battle of the Books and of course I will be donating the books to a library. I can’t wait for the contest to get going.

  6. Happy Read Across America Day, everyone!
