Book reviews (not just Newbery)

This is a Throwback Thursday picture posted on Sunday.  It shows that I have been a book reviewer for a a long time!  The Pink Motel was copyright 1959 and published as a Weekly Reader Book Club selection in 1960.

I re-read it this weekend, inspired to do so when I wrote the review of Carol Ryrie Brink's Newbery Medal winning book Caddie Woodlawn .  I remembered the gist of the story but this time I appreciated small jokes, like the gangsters' names (Jack Black and Jimmy Locke).
