The 3rd Annual Maud Hart Lovelace Reading Challenge Wraps Up

Wow! October just came and went I can hardly believe it is already the first of November and thus time to wrap-up the third Maud Hart Lovelace Reading Challenge.

As I stated last year; when I first created this reading challenge in 2009 I only intended it to be a medium of sorts where I could share with other readers my love for all things Betsy-Tacy since that time it has grown to be so much more and it has made me realize how vast the number of Maud Hart Lovelace and Betsy-Tacy fans there are! Likewise, I've had the joy of watching other readers discover this beloved author and her delightful books for the first time. It's been great!

I want to extend a special thanks to each participant in this year's challenge (and an extra extra thanks to those who have been with me for the last year or two). This challenge wouldn't be the same without you, so I am thrilled you've joined in. I hope you had a great time and will continue to explore the wonderful writings of Maud Hart Lovelace and spread the word about them to your fellow readers and bloggers.

Since this is the "wrap-up post" for this year's challenge I have opened a Mr. Linky where all participants can link-up any and all Maud related posts from their blog. (Even if in the last few weeks you have left a comment with a link to your blog I encourage to you re-post it here. This is a great way for me to connect with each of you and an awesome way for you all to connect with each other.)

** Note: For those of you waiting for word on the final Maud Hart Lovelace Give-Away, I will post the winner this weekend, so be sure to check back.

Whew...I just shared Betsy's wedding now...it was in draft. Also shared about Betsy's last two years of school. Reading B/T with 5 year old!

Thanks again for this reading challenge--I've had so much fun re-reading the few MHL books I could get to, and I've loved posting quotes from them. Promise to do it next year, too!

Thank you so much for hosting this! I had such a great time rereading these favorites and meeting new Betsy-Tacy fans.
