The Printz Project


I’m joining the Printz Project, that is, I will be attempting to read all the Printz award winners and as many of the Printz honor books as well.  I’ll keep my status updated here.  Check out the Printz Project’s website.

Here’s the list of winners and honor books… Bolded titles I have read, if I’ve reviewed the book I will also link to it.
