Michael L Printz Award

If you have been reading my posts you probably know by now that the Printz award is my favorite book award. Here is why. Just about every book I read that is a Printz honor or award winner is awesome! The award is relatively new and so I only have to read back ten years to finish all the books and I like that in a list. I am 28 percent done with the list as of today! Yalsa (Young Adult Library Services Association) puts out the list every year. Three cheers for Yalsa!! Oh and if you haven't noticed I crossed out the books I have read so far. I will post an update on my progress every six months or so. Also take a look around my blog for Printz book reviews I have done.
