Hello, my name is Nancy, and I'm hopelessly behind on my children's book reading.
It all started when I got hooked on late-19th and early-20th century American girls books. I read every one I could find, and when I realized that I'd pretty much run out, I started rereading. And rereading. I couldn't break away. I found it nearly impossible to try something new.
For a long time, I kept it a secret. I would politely sit silent while my friends talked about Narnia, His Dark Materials, Lord of the Rings, and (I am ashamed to admit) Bridge to Terabithia.
Then one day it happened. I read the Narnia series (late last year). I read Bridge to Terabithia (today!). I started putting the pieces of my broken reading world back together. I still have many missed books to catch up on, but I know I can do it.... One book at a time.
Are there any books you hear people talk about all the time that you haven't gotten around to reading yet?
