How many Newbery Award Winners Have you read?

I've alot more work to do on the Newbery Awards.  It seems I read more of them during my years as a young adult librarian.  Some I read just for myself as a kid.  Some of the ones I haven't read have always sounded intriguing, a few would still be torturous to read, such as one my high school librarian thought I'd like.  She obviously didn't have my reading tastes down.  I tried to read all of the fiction in her library.  Onion John stands out as a title that I just couldn't bear to crack the spine on.  I avoided reading the romantic books the popular girls were reading because, well, like I wanted any of their taste in reading in my head.  Stubborn mule as always.
