Spring Reading Thing 2009


Here’s a brief recap of how to be a part of the Spring Reading Thing 2009:

- Make a list of books you want to read (or finish reading) this spring. Your list can be as long or as short as you’d like. (Also, feel free to modify your list during the challenge if it’s not working for you.)
- Write a blog post containing your list and submit it to this post using the Mr. Linky below. (Please do not put your name on the Mr. Linky before you have your post done, and please link directly to your Spring Reading Thing post. If you don’t, your entry will be deleted. Read this post for more information.)
- Get reading! The challenge goes from today, March 20th, through June 20th.
- Check out other participants’ lists and add to your own to-read-someday pile!
- Write a post about your challenge experience in June, telling us all about whether you reached your goals and how the Spring Reading Thing went for you. Oh, and if you don’t finish your books, or if you change your list half-way through, or if you only read two books…it’s OKAY. This is a low-pressure challenge that should be fun. As long as you do some reading this spring (and enjoy it!), that’s good enough for me.

I love challenges like this one! Just do what you want, read what you want. Love it. I plan on reading anywhere from 15 - 20 books for this one.

Thanks for sharing the beginning of your list... I read Nineteen Minutes recently and definitely enjoyed it.

Good luck! Love Stardust :)

Looks like a good list. I've never read any Jodi Piccolo yet, her themes seem so depressing! Happy reading. :)

You're starting out your list with plenty of variety. I like that! I read Nineteen Minutes and enjoyed it, even though, in a way, it was very hard for me to read. Enjoy your books, and thanks for joining Spring Reading Thing 2009!

I have seen lots of good things about this book all over the blog world. I hope to read it one day. Matrimony - Joshua Henkin

I'm interested in what you think of the McEwan. He's not my favorite.

Lindsay said...

Great list. You have a bunch of books I want to read as well :-)

Looks like a good start to the list! :)

Dar said...

Nice list. I have a few of those I still need to read too, like Atonement and The Italian Lover. Happy Reading.

Sandra said...

I'm doing this one too. I have two books by Hellenga on my shelves that I haven't got to yet-I must pull them out. I haven't read him yet so I'll be interested in what you think of him. Atonement and Matrimony are both very good. Enjoy.

jodi picoult is one of my favorite authors, she has a way of capturing human emotion, enjoy!

Just Mom said...

All sorts of books I'm interested in on your list! Good luck with the challenge.
