Welcome to the first ever Maud Hart Lovelace Reading Challenge!
If you are a regular reader of this blog then you already know I am a long time fan of Mrs. Lovelace's writing, particularly the Betsy-Tacy series. I was introduced to the Betsy Ray by my mother, who, had herself, read the books as a teenager. I immediately fell in love with the stories and over the years have reread them several times, but I've never had the chance to share how great these books are to more than a few readers and only then by word of mouth. Until now!
Thanks to Harper CollinsPublishers, who have chosen to republish the last six novels in the Betsy-Tacy series, readers everywhere can now have easy and affordable access to some of Mrs. Lovelace's best stories. And so I ask you, what better time is there to launch a reading challenge then the week the books are released after being out of print for the last decade? There isn't. It is my hope that the Maud Hart Lovelace Reading Challenge will not only allow me to share my love of Mrs. Lovelace's books, but give you a chance to discover for yourself how timeless these stories truly are. Now, without further delay, let's begin!
First, to start: Link your blog (main site or permelink to an introductory post for this challenge) on the Mr. Linky below. I am planning to leave the Mr. Linky open until Saturday, October 10, so there is still time to spread the word if you know of someone who might be interested in joining in the fun.
Then throughout the month of October I will post various reviews and tidbits about Mrs. Lovelace and her books.
On Saturday, October 31st I will put a new Mr. Linky which will conclude the reading challenge. At that time feel free to put up one or all of the permelinks to your Lovelace Reading Challenge pots.
