Back-in-the-Day Children’s Book Mini-Challenge #readathon (hour 2)

Yeah, so my first hour of my first Read-A-Thon hasn’t gone well. This blog is acting up, but I’m going to leave it in the capable hands of my tech guy (shout out to Justin Ryan at DuckDuckBlue – seriously does YOUR tech guy see a tweet from you at 7am on a personal blog and volunteer to work on it RIGHT THAT MINUTE? I didn’t think so! This is why he rocks. When my husband dies, I’m asking you to marry me, Justin. I’m just sayin’) and get on with the reading.

So, I read very little. Oh well. The reading must go on… eventually! I did visit a couple of blogs though!

So Mini-Challenge #2 is from Miss Wisabus:
What were some of your favorite children’s books when you were younger? Do you have any new favorites now that you’re an adult? Have you included any children’s or YA titles in your Read-A-Thon stack this year?

My favorite book as a child was Euphonia and the Flood by Mary Calhoun. In fact, when I was pregnant with my first child, I paid entirely too much money to find that book and have it shipped to me. It’s been out of print for many years. Her saying in the book was “If a Thing’s Worth Doing, It’s Worth Doing Well.” It made a big impact on me, I still feel that way as an adult. Perhaps that’s why my blog being broken is irritating me so much. *laughing* I still read this book to my children and I still use the silly voices that my mom used with me. It makes me feel nostalgic for sure. As an adult… Okay, I’m going to admit it. I really love Wimpy Kid. I truly am a 12-year-old boy stuck inside of a 35-year-old woman 🙂

Here’s hoping Hour 2 is better to me!
