But that’s not the main reason I’m here today. Since Flash is not very good with numbers, he asked me to put together a little summary of the books we’ve recommended on Operation Story Share this past year.
Operation Story Share began on September 30 and has recommended 11 books so far:
- Elliot and the Goblin War
- The Grand Escape
- My Dog, Cat
- The Case of the Haystack Kitties
- Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key
- Invisible Inkling
- The Adventures of Captain Underpants
- Leon and the Spitting Image
- I, Freddy
Flash has been very concerned about the species of main characters in the books we recommend. Therefore, I have come up with a handy graph:
If you are paying attention, you might have noticed that there are 13 characters in my bar graph and we’ve only done 11 books. It was my opinion that 2 of our books had 2 main characters.
You’ll also notice that animal main characters outnumber human main characters. I suppose this is to be expected since those of us here on the blog are animals. I did think it was interesting that all of the human main characters were boys. Hmm. Flash may have to think about that for next year.
- 1 author interview
- 1 guest “recommender”
- 1 book-loving librarian interview
Flash said to stress that he hopes to have more interviews and guest “recommenders” next year. Operation Story Share is a place for our fans to tell everyone what books THEY like! If you would like to recommend a book for us like Hayley did, please say so in a comment and Flash will contact you.
I must say, it’s very easy and quite fun to recommend a book. Everyone on the blog has done it. Flash, and myself, and Spike, and Ringo and Lucy . . . Wait a minute! Oh, dear! We’re missing someone. Excuse me, I need to tell Flash about this right away.
