Melissa When you read a book as a child it becomes part of your identity in a way that no other reading in your life does.

message 6: by Isabella (new)

Isabella How come The Invention of Hugo Cabret and The Storm in the Barn are on this list? They aren't Newbery medal winners.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Both removed.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Removed for not being a Newbery Medal winner:

Foster Fox

Susanna, why are you "Censored by Goodreads"? And I also thank you for your work on keeping this list accurate!


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads As of the end of September, GR very abruptly decided to delete reviews and shelf names they didn't like - mostly anything with "author" in it, but also things like "hex" "icy-taa," and "tain," which was the user's shelf for books about the epic poem The Tain - without making a site anouncement. They stealth-anounced it in a thread on the Feedback group (read by 13,000 of what they brag is 20+ million of us) - a thread that is now, I think, the longest thread on GR at over 7000 posts.

Some of us have changed our screenames to reflect that we don't like censorship.

message 13: by Stephanie (new)

Stephanie Sapp Watsons go to Birmingham, great book but it was a Newbery Honor. Thanks for this list!


message 14: by Darla (last edited May 06, 2015 07:28AM) (new)

Darla several titles in this list are NOT Newbery Award winners but honor books #94-98 and #86 and I didn't see the latest winners Flora & Ulysses or The Crossover


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads The most recent winners may not have been added by a voter yet.


message 16: by Michael (new)

Michael Fitzgerald Removed 6 honor book titles as mentioned above. As of 2015, there should be only 94 medal winners.


message 17: by Keith (new)

Keith I think Night Before Christmas should be removed, and we have a new winner: Last Stop on Market Street. :) Thanks for the list!


message 18: by Fran (new)

Fran I removed Night Before Christmas. Last Stop on Market Street had already been added. I believe this list is now correct as of 12/06/16.


message 19: by Ali (new)

Ali 3 books have been added that are not Newbery award winners. Can the list creator remove them?
The Night the White Deer Died, The House of Sixty Fathers, The Education of Little Tree


message 20: by Michael (new)

Michael Fitzgerald Done.


message 21: by Ali (new)

Ali 3 more were added- not winners


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads What are they, and where are they?


message 23: by Michael (new)

Michael Fitzgerald Removed the 3. Apparently some clown felt that Shine Little Light by Jonathan Nettles (newly published) needed a promotional boost.


message 25: by Ali (new)

Ali It's back on there.


message 26: by Michael (new)

Michael Fitzgerald Fixed again. Here's the perpetrator - perhaps someone else wants to report: https://www.goodreads.com/list/user_votes/78132794-meeka


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Could remove from this list because clearly it is not qualified for it. The others - they're very general, and easy to spam books on. Unfortunately.
