Still Getting Organized

I only joined in October and since then I've been so busy, I can hardly think about which books I plan to read. I've been trying to read a fat novel for quite a while and want to get it done before I start this challenge with gusto. However, I have managed to read two kid books:
1) Zen Shorts by John J. Muth - Caldecott Honor Book - just beautiful both in its story and the illustrations (and has some great stories within the story).
2) Dear Mr. Henshaw by Beverly Cleary - Newbery Medal

I have some others waiting in the wings. I can't wait to get to them!
