Summing up my 2014 experience as CKG Judge

Karen Horsfield manages Resources for Learning at Somerset’s Schools’ Library Service. Here, she blogs about her role as a judge for the 2014 Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Children’s Book Awards. 

From November to January I read for over 303 hours,

18,200 minutes,

22,500 pages,

millions of words,

125 million letters.

That was 10% of my life.

in countless characters,

and dozens of plots.
