I Love Picture Books Reading Challenge 2015

Ok, here is my next one.  I didn't do this one this year, but while doing the Newbery challenge (and I intend to do that one again), I read a few Caldecott picture books and one of my other challenges this year required reading a picture book, so think I'll give this one a go. Picture books don't take long to read and I can read most of them in  less than a full day.   I'll try for 12 but will do as many as find time for and desire for.  To sign up, visit the Book Dragon's Lair.  Below are the details copied from the blog:

I Love Picture Books
Reading Challenge

hosted by Gina at Book Dragon's Lair - oh! That's me :-D
For all of you who still love picture books but find they don't qualify for your other challenges. . . You know you're going to read them, they might as well count!


  • Challenge runs from January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2015
  • Read picture books.
  • Pick a number and go for it. Twelve too easy? Go for 20. Piece of cake? Go for 40.
  • Books you own and library check outs count. So do ebooks and re-reads.
  • Please post about the challenge and sign up with a direct link.
  • A blog is not necessary, just link to where you talk about the challenge
  • Reviews are not necessary but would be nice (so we know which ones to read ourselves!) A link for reviews will be posted in January.
