It's Monday! What are you reading? 10/1/12

Jen and Kellee host a weekly meme called "What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA." It encourages you to share what you read during the previous week and to plan what you're going to read/review during the current week. Thank you, Kelly and Jen, for hosting this fun meme. 

I just returned home from an inspiring and informative dinner with Newbery Medalist Patricia MacLachlan. (I vividly remember devouring  Sarah, Plain and Tall when I was a shy fourth grader in Miss Burn's class.) She was in town to discuss her latest book, The Boxcar Children Beginning: The Aldens of Fair Meadow Farm. She captivated the entire table with her effervescent and charming personality. She's a hoot and an exceptional storyteller!

Colby Sharp and I read It's Like This, Cat for the Newbery Challenge. 

I could not stop smiling during my first, second, and third reading of Have Fun, Molly Lou Melon. I know it will be impossible not to smile when I read it for a fourth, fifth, sixth seventh, eighth, get the point. I'm currently working on interview questions for Patty Lovell. To be continued...
