If I spent as much time reading books as I did reading blogs, I’d have put away quite a few more books in 2011! But I do enjoy reading what others are reading, how they read, what kinds of things they like to read, and how they write about what they read! Over on http://callapidderdays.com a “Spring Reading Thing” started! I’m going to participate because it’s a simple event.
Simply create a list (can be ever-changing) of books that you want to read this spring – March 20 – June 20! Write about it. Link to her site. Write about it at its completion. Sounds simple enough! And so, with the help of my stack of books from the library and my goodreads account, here is a start on my list of books TBR this spring!
Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskine
Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman
Heart and Soul by Maeve Binchy
the next book from the library… will have to look it up as it’s downstairs. It was a new release that grabbed me.
The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford
Fly Away Home by Jennifer Weiner
Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand
I think that’s a good list to start with. I will finish Jane Eyre this week probably, and am looking forward to finding out what happens. Then I will listen to Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand.
So, do you have a list of books you want to read this spring?
Off to read!

We must have similar tastes. I’ve got Major Pettigrew and Hotel on my Kindle waiting to be read. I’m reading Mockingbird for this challenge also. A friend at work whose son has Asbergers highly recommended it, so I moved it up my list. I just finished rereading Jane Eyre last week. I’d forgotten how good it was. I can’t wait to see the new movie if it ever opens in my city. I’m also wanting to read CeeCee. Great list. Good luck with the challenge.
Thanks, Renee! Maybe when I’m done with Jane Eyre we’ll have to talk about it! I’m listening to the audio and am on disc 12 of 18… into part three! I, too, am looking forward to the moving coming to the “theatre near me.” 🙂 I didn’t take the time to look at many other lists yet, but look forward to doing that!
I’ve seen a few of those books on other’s lists as well. Happy spring reading!
The only book I’ve read from your list is Hotel a the Corner… I really liked it. It was slower-paced than my usual reading fare, but it drew me and kept me interested. Thanks for being part of SRT ’11 — enjoy your spring reading!
