Etc Tell Me What to Read

What I’m Going to Read: Round 9

And the winner is Jackaroo by Cynthia Voigt, suggested by one of my lovely Texas friends, Alison K. And just in time, too, as I finished Dealing with Dragons just yesterday.

I also put several of the books you suggested on hold, so we’ll see how many I can manage to get through this month. Cross your fingers for me.

Other non-winning bids:

Of these, I’ve read: 

and, a new category – books I might possibly have read but cannot actually remember because I am suddenly becoming old and probably can’t remember my own address anymore:

    OH I LOVE Jackaroo. I've read this book I don't know how many times. I could still tell you exactly where to find it on my mom's downstairs bookshelf… I don't know what it was about this style of book, but I read every single one I could get my hands on :). Cynthia Voigt is one of my all-time favorite authors.

    Okay, I see from your list that you haven't read Eats, Shoots and Leaves by Lynne Truss, and I would like to say that you definitely should. It's short and absolutely hilarious and I think you'd like it.

    Enjoy! This was one of my daughter's favorites.

    Oh man, oh man, oh man. I am so happy at this result. I read "On Fortune's Wheel" (in the same loosely-connected series) when I was in middle school and it is one of my all-time favorites. I was actually going through a reading drought at the time and the book made me love reading again. You should definitely read the whole series if you like Jackaroo.

    Ohhh, I'm glad you've read Matilda! And I'm glad you picked Jackaroo – I love that one, too! Jackaroo was one of my picks for the Unsung YA project!

    I hope you've read Tuck Everlasting-it's very good. I'll have to look Jackaroo on my list-seems like a great choice.
