That was about to change. I started reading a few more YA books since I challenged myself to read all of the Nerdy Shortlist books from 2012. As I was enjoying those, I decided to go ahead and do the Printz Challenge to read all of the winners and honor books. I'm lovin' it!! And I have even more incentive to read YA for the Rich in Color blog I am part of now. It is so cool to have given myself "permission" to read what I enjoy most. I'm still reading elementary level books, but the amounts have flipped. I fully expect that after this bit of a binge, things will settle back to a more even split, but like Donalyn Miller in her Nerdybookclub post today, I don't want reading to just be an obligation. It is one of my avenues of recreation and stress relief. Donalyn reminded us of the Rights of a Reader.
I am holding on to #5 The Right to Read Anything.
