With the new year fast approaching, I’m sure many of you are still busy with holiday commitments and travel, but even if you haven’t yet had an opportunity to get started with the Hub’s Morris/Nonfiction reading challenge, I hope that you will consider it! Given that the challenge doesn’t end until February 2nd, there is still plenty of time to join us. In fact, this would make a perfect New Year’s Resolution! So, get started now to find some awesome new nonfiction or some amazing new young adult authors. Who knows? You might find a new favorite author or finally get to read a book that you have been meaning to read all year! And, as an added bonus, reading you do as part of the challenge will count towards the upcoming Hub Reading Challenge, which starts in February! So, what are you waiting for?!? Start reading now and don’t get left behind by your friends!
Whether you are still reading or have already finished the challenge, leave us a comment about what you have liked so far or which books you can’t wait to read. Personally, I’m most excited to start reading Laughing at My Nightmare by Shane Burcaw which I’ve been wanting to read since I first hear about it. How about you? And, if you’ve already completed the challenge, please fill out the form at the end of this post to tell us about your accomplishment and to share your favorite!

I read three this week: The Carnival at Bray, Laughing at My Nightmare, and The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender. I loved The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender. I didn’t really love Laughing at My Nightmare, which was disappointing because I was excited to read it.
Ida M. Tarbell is up next.
I’ve read four on each list; still waiting for #5 of each list to arrive at my library so I can read them.
I’ve reading Laughing at My Nightmare (which I liked), The story of Owen (not my favorite but it was ok), and Ida Tarbell (did not enjoy at all). I have started Ava Lavender.
I finished Port Chicago and I’m working on Ida M. Tarbell, which is interesting, but slow going for me with all the holiday distractions….
I am *almost* done with Popular (my first for the challenge) — and I am LOVING IT!U I think I will start Port Chicago next. #simsburyct
I read Laughing at My Nightmare, which I loved, Scar Boys, which I thought was okay, and The Family Romanov, which I thought was pretty good.
I’m late checking in on this one… Holiday travels! Anyhow, I’m about half way through The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavendar. Different, but intriguing. Started Gabi and finding it quite good. Finished Owen.
