When I try to pinpoint the exact moment I fell in love with books, I am flooded with memories of my elementary school where we were always encouraged to read everything and write just as much. Our principal had an Author’s Chair in her office where we could go in and read her our own work, each of our classrooms were stocked with a teacher’s private library in addition to the one we visited every week, and then there was the teacher who slipped us books that were a little bit above our age group to keep our brains nimble.
So when I saw Hannah from So Obsessed With Blog adding so many of my favorite childhood books to her Goodreads a few months ago, it felt like the perfect opportunity to team up and work on a blog feature together. Today, we are so happy to announce:
You Make Me Feel So Young
I hope you have the ice skating scene from Elf stuck in your head right now because that totally inspired the name.
To celebrate, Hannah and I are each giving away a copy of our first joint read: Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh.
Harriet M. Welsch is a spy. In her notebook, she writes down everything she knows about everyone, even her classmates and her best friends. Then Harriet loses track of her notebook, and it ends up in the wrong hands. Before she can stop them, her friends have read the always truthful, sometimes awful things sheâ€™s written about each of them. Will Harriet find a way to put her life and her friendships back together?
This giveaway is open to all U.S. & international readers. Be sure to check the Terms for more detail.
Good luck & we can’t wait to hear all about your childhood reading experiences throughout 2015! This is going to be SO MUCH fun. Be sure to stop in and read Hannah’s introduction post too! xoxo
