According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac yesterday was the summer solstice. Our high temperature was 92°F. Hello Summer! Yesterday was also the last day of this year’s Spring Reading Thing. Time to wrap-up the reading challenge sponsored by Katrina at Callapidder Days.
So . . . to “wrap it up” . . .
The original list with spring green updates is posted here. My original goal was to read 6 books and I finished five this spring. Only two were from the original list. Three others were added.
The Florabama Ladies’ Auxilliary and Sewing Circle by Lois Battle
The Heretic’s Daughter by Kathleen Kent
Antiques Bazarre by Barbara Allan
Respect the Spindle by Abby Franquemont
Spinning in the Old Way by Priscilla A. Gibson-Roberts
The Weed That Strings the Hangman’s Bag by Alan Bradley I’ll finish it today but not in time to count for the challenge.
I’ve been distracted this spring with learning to spin on the drop spindle. The original reading list took a back seat to the books on spinning. I read some sections so many times, the number of pages would probably add up to another book :-}
I enjoyed all the books this spring and would recommend each one. And there are plenty left on the list and the shelves to keep me busy this summer. How about you? What are you reading? What’s on your TBR list?
Thanks for stopping by today. Your visits and comments are always appreciated!
