The Newbery Project

There are tons of new challenges going around right now, and I am very firmly NOT JOINING any of them. I have a couple I plan to do in 2008 (after I fail the ones in 2007) but nothing new for fall. Then today as I was bloghopping, I found this- The Newbery Project. This is been going on for a while now, it's not new, but I just found it. There is no list to be made (the list already exists) and no set number of books to read. There is no time limit. Just read them. Here's the complete list, with the ones I've already read (as an adult, I read quite a few of them as a child) marked off.
