I have been missing on reading these days due to personal commitments.

Hence, I have been thinking of taking up some reading projects which will help me read some quality books considering the time constraint.

These are relatively new awards and suit my reading preferences. So here is the new addition to my blog and reading. Welcome ! 🙂

From Wikipedia

The Michael L. Printz Award is an American Library Association literary award that annually recognizes the “best book written for teens, based entirely on its literary merit”.

The Printz Project is hosted by Suey and Jessica.There is no time constraint to read all the books. Please click on the link to have a look.
