Status Report - June 2010
Since it has been a little while, I'm going to give a little update as to where I'm at as of today with this challenge:
Goal set for reading all of the children's picture books in our library:
Monday, September 28th
Progress as of today's date:
I've read (according to the last name of the author) through the "A" section and am into the "Bo" section.
Total number of picture books read:
By my count, 627.
Average number of times I go to the library during the week:
Average number of books checked out per visit:
I've made about 17 trips to the library, bringing the average number of books checked out per visit to about 36.
Favorite New-to-Me author I've discovered so far:
Today I discovered that Felicia Bond (illustrator for the If You Give a Mouse a Cookie series) is a book author as well as an illustrator. I was sitting and reading through a book by Bond, thinking that the pig looked an awful lot like the pancake variety-type and made the connection. I didn't know she had penned her own books as well but the book was a requested re-read. I think we've read this particular title (soon to be reviewed) at least six times today alone.
Total amount of fines due so far:
$3.95 (Up $0.60 from the last time!)
