The Betsy-Tacy Reading Challenge

After reading a kazillion posts lately about these certain books on the blogs, I have decided to participate in the Betsy-Tacy Reading Challenge, sponsored by A library is the  hospital of the mind . . .

book club girl has been posting about Maud Hart Lovelace and her Betsy-Tacy series of books for quite a while now. You can access her Betsy-Tacy posts here.

Booking Mama has also has many posts about Betsy-Tacy if you peruse her blog.

She is Too Fond of Books‘ posts on Betsy-Tacy are also accessible here.

How to participate:
  • Plan which books of the series you want to read (you don’t have to read them all).
  • Go to the A library is the hospital of the mind‘s site through October 10th and sign up on her Mr. Linky. Post your name and a link to your posting (not just your blog) that talks about the challenge (the permalink). 
  • Read the books from the series or whichever ones from the series you want to read!
  • On October 31st, go back and link more your thoughts and postings about the series after reading some (or all) of the books.
  • Visit the other blogs that are on the Mr. Linky list to see what everyone else has to say about their readings of the books. Happy Betsy-Tacy reading! I can’t wait to start!

    I’m so glad you’re doing this, too! It’s fun to discover these books as an adult (better late than never, I tell myself!)

    So true, Dawn! I can’t believe I had never even heard of these books until recently!
