Hello Spring!!! This weekend’s weather has been lovely, bulbs are starting to bloom in the garden, and now you’re finally here, Spring! Welcome!!! I’ve been waiting for you for such a very long time! (I thought about adding more exclamation points, but I decided you could already tell I’m excited.)
The first day of Spring also means that it’s time for the start of the Spring Reading Thing 2011, sponsored by Katrina at Callapidder Days. I first found Katrina’s challenges in the fall of 2009 and have really enjoyed participating each fall and spring since. Basically, make a list and post the books you’d like to read during the challenge. Read what’s on your list, change it as you like. Post your progress at the end of the challenge (June 20th). There’s no required list or number of books. What could be easier? Visit Katrina at Callapidder Days to get more information and sign up. Join us!
I read a record 7 books this winter. There’s no way to know for sure and I can’t explain why, but I think the Kindle has something to do with it.
So, here’s my list in no particular order, except for the first book that I started yesterday — couldn’t wait.
Waiting on the Kindle ~
. Millie’s Fling (Jill Mansell)
. Invisible (Lorena McCourtney) finished
. The Forgotten Garden (Kate Morton)
Added to the list ~
. Leota’s Garden (Francine Rivers) finished
. 13 Little Blue Envelopes (Maureen Johnson) finished
. The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie (Alan Bradley) finished
I have a long wish list waiting in the wings if I need more. Who knows what I may add or substitute after I read the lists of other SRT participants. And I may spend more time in the garden and not finish the list at all. I’ll come back here and update in spring green.
I’m going to combine my reading for this challenge with the 2011 E-Book Challenge. Progress on other challenges can be found on the Reading Lists page in the sidebar.
Happy Spring and Happy Reading!
