It’s become something of a tradition for me and my mom, CJ, to host our very own #BookADayMay reading challenge via our book blog, Middle Grade Carousel. This is a fun way to get a jump on those year-long reading goals and get a little extra reading in before the summer heat hits!

Quote of the Day – Beyond the Laughing Sky

Quote of the Day

Nashville’s mother had a voice like footsteps in new winter snow. Some say the birds in Goosepimple sang differently after they heard her. Some say they were never the same.

Quote of the Day – Winnie-the-Pooh

Quote of the Day

Christopher Robin was sitting outside his door, putting on his Big Boots. As soon as he saw the Big Boots, Pooh knew that an Adventure was going to happen, and he brushed the honey off his nose with the back of his paw, and spruced himself up as well as he could, so as to look Ready for Anything.

–Winnie-the-Pooh by A. A. Milne

Quote of the Day – The Wizard of Oz

Quote of the Day

“While Dorothy was looking earnestly into the queer, painted face of the Scarecrow, she was surprised to see one of the eyes slowly wink at her. She thought she must have been mistaken, at first, for none of the scarecrows in Kansas ever wink; but presently the figure nodded its head to her in a friendly way.”

–The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum
