The Printz Project


Today I became aware of a website, The Printz Project, that encourages YA readers to read all the Printz Award and Honor books.  I started doing this very thing several years ago so I decided to pull my list onto one blog for easy viewing of my progress.  Take a look at my original posting for other lists and challenges that I am working on as well.

Micheal J. Printz Award and Honor Books. 
My reading project is to read all Printz Award/Honor books and then to stay current. I started this project when I became a librarian in 2005.

  1. Sadly, I've only heard of one or two of these and read none of them though the Book Theif is on my shelf here at home. I saw the movie Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging: Confessions of Georgia Nicolson. Oh, and I have Jellicoe Road, but it's way down on my reading list. Haven't been able to get into it. You've really concentrated on this list. Kudos!
