Spring Reading Thing 2009: Let's Read!
Katrina at Callapidder Days is hosting Spring Reading Thing 2009. This is my first time to participate in a book challenge, but I think this will be fun. Katrina also hosts a Fall into Reading challenge.
For this challenge you put together a list of books you want to read between March 20 and June 20 and then simply read them. Your list can be as long or as short as you’d like and you can modify at any time during the challenge. If you would like to join along you can sign up here, Spring Reading Thing 2009: Let’s Read!
So here is my list, I have chosen to read six books by the June 20th deadline. Since I'm getting a bit of a delayed start my list isn't nearly as lengthy as others and several on my list are books I want to finish. I think this list is fairly doable for me since I want to leave plenty of time for my dogs, Cello practice and some motorcycle riding coming up.
My list is:
To first finish reading The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski (I LOVE THIS BOOK so far but got side tracked by the wedding trip to England and have not finished it yet so I MUST find out how it all ends!!)
The Red Tent by Anita Diamant
Loving Frank by Nancy Horan
The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
The Guardian by Nicholas Sparks
Dogs and Goddesses by Jennifer Crusie, Anne Stuart, and Lani Diane Rich
Edited to add:
Never Too Late by John Holt
You can add to your list and switch it around so nothing is written in stone (sorry for the pun). It is all to just enjoy reading and also to read reviews by other readers.
