Recently I read a book that I didn't think was that great. I trudged through every page because the book is a Newbery Medal winner with a shiny silver stamp on the front of the book. I thought maybe the next page would have a novel inspiring idea, but I just kept turning the pages… Continue reading What is the Newbery Medal?
While cruising through my reader today, I was struck by the challenge The Forgotten Bella posted: to compose a story/poem/etc. with each letter of the alphabet starting a new sentence, alphabetically of course.

Ladies and gentlemen, Shieldmaidens and Vikings, I feel I must explain the importance of last night's win. NFL football is one of my favorite sports to watch. I don't follow all the teams and do the rosters and all that, but I do like to watch the Vikings. In fact, one of my favorite memories… Continue reading Vikings for the Win!
