Baseline: It Isn’t Just a Street in Phoenix

Every project needs a baseline. Of the BBC’s 100 Book Challenge and the 101 Chapter Books to Read, how many had I read before I saw these lists?

I’d read 21 of the books from BBC’s 100 Book Challenge list and 31 from the 101 Chapter Books list. This may be plus or minus one or two on these lists. For example, I’m almost certain I’ve read both Caddie Woodlawn and the Little Princess but because I can’t remember, I marked them as unread.

I started the BBC List about a year ago and the 101 Chapter Book list earlier this summer. I’ve made some great progress, so my totals are now 37 read from the BBC list and 39 from the Chapter Book list. In the next few weeks, I’ll write about how I’ve tackled the list and my thoughts on some of the stories.

So here are the lists again.

1. The BBC Book List Challenge.

2. The 101 Best Chapter Books for Kids

What is your baseline?
