Twain and Truman Nominees for 2010-2011

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

The new Twain and Truman nominees were posted last week on the Missouri Associations of School Library site. Since the Book Battle committee always tries to chose some of the books off these two lists, I thought I might post the list for participants to see and comment on. One that I was very happy to see was The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I just read this book and its sequel Catching Fire and loved them both. I have also made my own list of the ones I will be reading over the winter break. You'll also notice that Found by Margaret Peterson Haddix, which is already on the 2009-2010 Book Battle list is one of the Truman nominees. Let me know which of these books you have read and enjoyed.

Your state lists are so much better than our Young Hoosier. I've read quite a few on the Truman lists and they are well worth the time!
