Revisiting Harriet The Spy

Are you with me?

Here’s the plan: I’m going to reread Harriet the Spy, in honor of her Fiftieth Anniversary. Then, I’ll share my chapter by chapter reactions to my reread.

If you want to join me, I plan on doing this starting Monday, March 24. And, of course, it can be either a reread — or a first time read!

  7. Elizabeth Burns says

    Yay! Glad to have you all joining in!

    I’m in. I read this book countless times as a child, but my husband had the privilege of reading it to our daughter, so I’m overdue.
