Lists. Everyone compiles them and most people follow through with what is on them. The older I get the more lists I make. I meticulously check things off as I complete them. ( I am sure that is a sign of old age). I am giving you some top 10 lists today that are related to books. Check them out, then check those things you want to go deeper with off your list once you do them. Enjoy.

Lois Lowry, whose novels consistently blow us away, is one of only five authors who have been awarded the Newbery Medal twice — once for Number the Stars in 1990, and again for The Giver in 1993 (two more of her doubly awarded peers are also on our list!). Lowry does not shy away from disturbing or difficult topics — the Holocaust, dystopian futures, terminal illness — but instead addresses them head on with grace and captivating ability. Two decades later, we’re still arguing with our friends over whether Jonas dies or finds salvation at the end of The Giver. The question, like the book, still feels urgent, which is how we know she’s one of the best.
