CHALLENGE: Hometown Challenge Update

Callista had a great idea to read a book either set in your hometown, or written by someone from your hometown, between November 1, 2007 and March 1, 2008. I picked two books:

1. So Long, Jackie Robinson by Nancy Russell young adult
2. Lorelei by Lori Derby Bingley romance

I read an extra one, but they were also Canadian books, natch, so I didn't mind. My son also read So Long, Jackie Robinson, and liked it so much, we bought another book by Nancy Russell, Rink of Dreams for him to read as well. Any book that keeps a ten year old boy reading, has to be a good thing. A very good thing.

hey! Did you notice? Spellcheck is back.


  1. Yeah, I noticed that about spellcheck. I'm so relieved!

  2. This challenge sounded like fun, but I didn't join because the only authors from my small town write non-fiction history that didn't sound interesting.

    It is satisfying when our kids read, isn't it?

  3. bybee - its grate!

    booklogged - that's too bad there were no books from our town. I also have a family geneology book to read that my mother wrote. I must get to that one for sure!

    Both of my kids love to read so far. I think just having this good base will serve them well, even if they have a spell later when they don't read as much.
