Back In Time Reader

read a series of books

I read a book to earn this badge: 
the manga series Emma by Kaoru Mori.
I am interlibrary loaning a series of manga about a maid in late nineteenth-early twentieth centry London and her relationship with a gentleman who used to be the student of the woman Emma worked for. A delightful series that I am really enjoying.

Read the book "The Snow Goose"

I read a book to earn this badge: 
"Snow Goose" by Paul Allico
This book--both written during WWII and set in WWII--is about a reclusive artist who lived at a lighthouse on England's coastline. He cares for an injured Snow Goose and befriends the local girl who brought the goose to him. He breaks out of seclusion to help save his fellow countrymen--soldiers trapped by Germans on the shores of Dunkirk. A short but remarkable story.

Read a Fantastic Book about the Civil War

I read a book to earn this badge: 
Two Miserable Presidents by Steve Sheinkin

Two miserable presidents: everything your schoolbooks didn't tell you about the Civil War by Steve Sheinkin ; illustrated by Tim Robinson — Seriously, put this book on hold, because you'll want it as soon as I return it. Loved this book about the Civil War (we're still in the midst of its 150th anniversary, by the way). Sheinkin manages to hit all the high points I remember learning about, while also filling in much more interesting details. He adds personal information about the more famous folks involved in the war in addition to telling stories about ordinary people. I'm really digging this author, who also wrote Bomb, The Notorious Benedict Arnold, and others (seriously - none of these should show available in the library catalog - check them out now).

Read a Book by a Favorite Author

I read a book to earn this badge: 
Will Sparrow's Road by Karen Cushman

Will Sparrow's road by Karen Cushman — I couldn't get into Will's character until about halfway through the book, when he started to open himself up to some of the other characters. I typically really enjoy Cushman's novels, and this one was fine, but was lacking some of the spice or polish of her other stories.



Catherine, called Birdy by Karen Cushman — This is my favorite of Karen Cushman's books - the diary of a medieval young girl who is being arranged into marriage. Catherine has plenty of personality, and the history comes through in her diary entries much more smoothly than it does in Will's tale.
