Hi! I'm sort of back. I don't actually have any new books in the pipeline yet, but I'm working on getting the rest of the 1929 Honor Books through interlibrary loan.

Now that we're past the years which had no Newbery Honor Books, I've decided to make a summary post as I finish each year (and some retrospective posts, of which this is the first), commenting on each book in brief and noting which one would have received the Newbery Medal if I'd had the final say. ;-)

This is largely to keep me motivated, but I'm hoping it will also make the comm more navigable and possibly more interesting. XD

The 1923 and 1924 Newberys had no Honor Books, so I'm going to lump them together, and 1925 - which had two Honor Books - as well.

(I really wish the history of the deliberations was public, you know? Or made public after a certain time, like census records are, when the particular award had ceased to be CURRENT DRAMA. I know that for the first year any librarian could make a nomination and anything nominated got onto the list, after which they switched to a committee format; but it's only a guess that for the next two years the committee worked on a "pick only one book" plan, till 1925 changed their minds somehow.)
