to 100!

The phrase "looks like we made it" keeps ringing in my head. The Comment Challenge 2010 was a lot harder than I predicted. Thank you MotherReader for pushing us all to read, write, reflect and connect. It's been great!

Thank you for everyone who visited Miss Pippi at Pippi's Postings. Happy blogging everyone!

MotherReader is hosting a Comment Challenge 2010. It ends in one week! According to my Post-It note tallies, I am currently at 35. If I want to make 100, I need to spend some serious face to face time with my computer. We shall see what this week brings. To date - I have really enjoyed visiting others and their blogs. I've got a list of neat places to continue checking out and books to read.

Visiting schools and students is so much fun! I love sharing books with the boys and girls I meet. Some of my books I shared this month included...

The 43 Old Cemetery Road series by Kate Klise illustrated by M. Sarah Klise

#1: Dying to Meet You and #2: Over My Dead Body

These books are written through letters, illustrations, newspapers and more! The author includes play on words that are sure to please. It's a gentle and fun ghost story that I can't wait to read another from the Klise duo.

The Library of Doom series from Zone Books by Michael Dahl

The Librarian's duty is to keep the books from falling into the hands of those who would use them for evil purposes. Evil books!? How grand! How chilling! You can do it, Librarian! Michael Dahl wrote an easy reader series with hints of mischief, madness and horror. Here is a listing of the current books in the Library of Doom series.

Other books that caught my interest include...
