Thanks for orgainising this group BookLizard.
I really enjoy the 1001 books list and I'm looking forward to reminiscing about ones I've read as a child and ones I've enjoyed with my own children.
My kids are now teenagers and my youngest niece is 8, so I'll be interested to see what everyone else is reading with their kids. Especially the younger age groups.
I really miss reading Slinky Malinky out loud to my kids, shame how young teens don't appreciate it.
I was happy to see Tomorrow, When The War Began on the list, but couldn't believe they didn't include Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson.
Thanks for the google spreadsheet link, and for entering them into the Awards here! That way, I can at least have the list, if not the editors' comments. I'll put some in the Awards too, when I get the chance.
I plan on starting a thread for myself with the number of books I've read from the list and just add posts when I read more. I don't have time to do a retroactive list of what I've read.
I'll probably add some tag like "1001CB" when I add books from the list to my library.
Dive in! Have fun!
I collect awarded childrens & YA (Dutch awards) and at first look at the list I have already 130 down, 5 waiting in my TBR pile, so I can look how many of them are available in Dutch.
>5 sdbookhound: I've started one discussion thread, and I think BookLizard, the creator of this group, is happy for everyone to open a discussion thread.
Looking forward to seeing everyones thoughts.
Oh, good . . . me too! Although there are some absolute gems and delights on this list, overall I find it completely uninspired. And I won't be buying the book, because I already own all three editions of the New York Times Parent's Guide to the Best Books for Children (let's just say that, at first glance, it doesn't look like the 1001 people went much further than this book in making their list).
edit: adding that on a quick look through the book I've read around 327 and already have several on my tbr.
I just joined the group today. I bought the book for myself for Christmas and my daughter and I were skimming through it tonight. She was very excited to see some of her books in there and the titles of ones that she wants to read.
I don't know how many I've read, and there are some I think I read when I was young, but now can't remember for sure. Nonetheless, there are many that I wouldn't mind reading again.
Looking forward to future discussions...
#2 I too was happy to see Tomorrow When the War Began on this list. I absolutely love this series.
Welcome to the group everyone, especially new member bear1982. Hope you enjoy LT as much as many of us do.
13>I thought I might be able to get away without buying the book and just use the spreadsheet, but what you've said just made me want to flick through the actual book now! :-)
Just heard late last week that the local primary school were my 3 children (now teenagers & young adults, youngest 13 eldest 20) all went to school had the school library burnt down! It is thought it was deliberate! We are all pretty cut-up about it. We had donated books to the library each year that my children attended.
I plan to donate more books later in the year when they have had a chance to rebuild and have somewhere to house the books.
I think I'll choose mainly from this list. Please keep the recommendations flowing. :-)
