A Daring Book Challenge

Yet another one! Callista is hosting A Daring Book Challenge based on booklists at the end of The Daring Book for Girls (which I still have to read!)

I'm choosing Track 1 - Read one book from each category from June 15/08 to February 15/09.

Here they are:

1. Girl Classics: Emily of New Moon by LM Montgomery

2. Other Favorites: The Hoboken Chicken Emergency by Daniel Pinkwater

3. Sci Fi and Fantasy: The Book of Three (Chronicles of Prydain, book 1) by Lloyd Alexander

4. Girl and Her Horse: Black Beauty by Anna Sewell

5. Fairy Tales: Beauty by Robin McKinley

6. Girl Detective: The Secret of the Mansion (Trixie Belden series) by Julie Campbell

I'm surprised to see someone mention Trixie Belden. I think I read all of them when I was a kid! It was my "Nancy Drew."

Also, my sister-in-law found another book by Julie Campbell and gave it to me last Christmas. It's titled, Ginny Gordon and the Lending Library. I hadn't previously seen any other books by Julie Campbell, so this was a nice little surprise. I think I would have liked it when I was a kid.

I have to join this one too!! Big Trixie fan myself. I even mentioned it in my Weekly Geek's post a few weeks ago.

What fun choices!!

Terri - Y'know, Trixie seems to be really popular! They've reprinted a lot of the books and (as Stephanie mentions) a lot of people recently mentioned her in the Weekly Geeks posting about childhood faves. I don't know how I missed her! So now I want to catch up. :)

Stephanie - I think it's going to be a fun challenge, so I hope you'll join, too - we seem to be challenge-mates at lot! And I remember you'd mentioned Trixie - I was surprised by her huge following of Geeks! :)
