I Never Met a Newberry I Didn't Love

I've been disappointed in a couple of my latest reading downloads.  Free downloads are not always a good investment.  After the latest disappointment, Friend-husband handed me a book and said, try this.

It's a Newberry Award winner--one I've never read.  The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare.  Appropriate, since we are on our way to Salem, Massachusetts. 

I can scarcely put it down.  What an engaging and well written book. So refreshing.  I think it is my new best friend.  It's an old book--written in the fifties.  Our copy is old too, tattered, and well worn.  I can see why.

I've been reading a lot of new books lately, but they have nothing over these old favorites. 

I've never met a Newberry I didn't love.  How about you.

Really - you've never read this before? It was required reading for us in about 5th or 6th grade. I think I should read it again just because it's such a wonderful book. Enjoy your trip.
