The Spring Reading Thing 2010 is sponsored by Katrina at Callapidder Days. I hit a slump for a little while, but am steaming ahead now. My original list is here with all the updates listed, in “spring green” of course 🙂
Since the last update, I’ve finished The Beach Street Knitting Society and Yarn Club by Gil McNeil. It was an enjoyable, light read. There’s a sequel out in paperback, Needles and Pearls, that I’ve already picked up and will put on the summer list.
Next up was The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. Another good read that I finished off in record time. The story is told by Lily who is fourteen with many unanswered questions about her mother. Excellent book.
Currently reading . . .
The whole story is told in a series of letters between a variety of characters. I’ve eyed this book because of the title for quite a while, but always hesitated because of the “letters” style. Now, about a third of the way through, I can’t put it down. I’ve taken a look at the reader’s guide in the back of the book and have a few ideas about what’s going to happen. But I stopped myself before I figured everything out. Do you use the reader’s guides? Before, during or after a read? Sometimes I think they give too much away. And sometimes, it’s what keeps me reading.
The challenge ends on the last day of spring — June 20. Only 18 day’s left.
I’m headed off to stitch on the Christmas Patchwork for a bit and then maybe do a little reading on the deck after supper.
As always, I appreciate your visits and comments. Enjoy the rest of your day!
