Hi all, decided to make this an annual event, basically just a mini version of the Summer Reading Challenge. If you'd like to take part please choose 3 horse/pony books to read throughout the challenge. Don't forget to give us your comments on each one and rate them as per below. This year it is total free choice. If you didn't complete the Summer Challenge, you may like to choose any books you didn't finish. Also an option is to choose one of the 'Star Reads' from that challenge - although due to less people taking part this year, and the fact one book was starred by a few folk, there aren't many to choose from! Please register you books and make any comments on this thread.
STARTING DATE: 17th January 2021 CLOSING DATE: 1st March 2021 CHOOSES ANY 3 PONY BOOKS TO BE READ BY END DATE Read all three by end date to 'win' a virtual trophy. Each book read also wins a virtual rosette, yellow for first book , blue for second and red for third.
RATINGS: Please rate each book read as the following: enjoyed / didn't enjoy / neutral / conflicted. Plus choose your favourite from the three as your 'star read' - also don't forget to give a short commentary on each book.
STAR BOOKS: If you would like to choose from the star reads from the Summer Challenge here they are: Land of Ponies by M. M. Oliver Ponies in Peril by DPT A Pony for Jean by Joanna Cannan
I hope everyone who takes part enjoys the mini challenge.
I have decided to go with either Six Ponies or The Radney Riding Club. I have to buy a copy of The Radney Riding Club because mine is an edited paperback. Fortunately that's an relatively easy replacement due to amazon. Six Ponies is even easier due to already owning the Fidra Books edition.
So that's 2 books sorted if I include The Ghost of Christmas Paws by Mandy Morton. Still undecided on the third.
Claire: Hi all apologies for not being around the last few days. Have been away travelling with no intyernet

tali: One of the Jinny books has a sub story line of egg stealing so may be the one you are thinking of. It is one of the books that features the character Claire Burnley.

ginslinger: It is one of the early Jinny books. I only read the first few and I found the storyline upsetting.
