Spring Reading Thing 2011

The lovely sounds of birds chirping awakes me in the morning.
The sun, gracing us with it's presence longer each day.
The grass, getting greener and the leaves starting to, slowly, appear on the trees.
It can only mean one thing...
Time for Spring Reading Thing 2011!





{challenge starts tomorrow, March 20th and runs until June 20th. to read all about the challenge and to sign up, click on the above picture!}
 

Katrina from Callapidder Days hosts a twice-yearly reading challenge. I participated and enjoyed, for the first time, last fall as part of the Fall Into Reading 2010 challenge. My goal was to read nine books for the three month challenge. I didn't do too bad...I ended up being one book short!

This go-round, I am going to give myself more of a challenge and attempt to read twelve books over the next three months of the challenge! {now I know some of you read that many books in a week, but for me, this would be quite the accomplishment!}
The books I am hoping to get to are:

{Fiction}
The Reckoning by Beverly Lewis
Lydia's Charm by Wanda E. Brunstetter
A Memory Between Us by Sarah Sundin
Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum
My Enemy's Cradle by Sara Young
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
How to Knit a Love Song by Rachael Herron

{Non-Fiction}
Radical by David Platt
Simplicity Parenting by Lisa M. Ross

And...since my hubby has decided to let me get an e-reader {still debating which one I want} I am more than excited to purchase the e-book of the above titles that I currently do not own, which in turn will make this all the more fun!

So...are you participating? If so, leave me a comment and I will make sure to stop by and check out your list of books!

Looking forward to getting to know everyone through this fun challenge!

Thanks Katrina for deciding to host the Spring Reading Thing!

Happy Reading!

  1. This reminds me that I have to get my Spring Reading Thing post up! I love your selections, and hope you have a fun time picking out your e-reader. Two or so weeks ago I bought a Kindle from a Best Buy store. I love it! I haven't even bought a single book yet, I've only gotten free ones. Pretty much any classic is free. I downloaded Sense and Sensibility recently and hopefully I will read it soon...maybe I'll add it to my Spring Reading Thing list! Anyway, happy Spring and happy reading!

  2. I recently read Those Who Save Us and found it to be extremely well written and very thought provoking. I've had a Kindle since October and I ADORE it. My eleven year old got one for her birthday and she never leaves home without it. I really can read the Kindle outside without glare. I also get so many free books I really only buy a couple of books a month.

  4. Looks like a great list. There is a few on there that I want to read, too but they just didn't make my list this time. I'm shooting for about 12 books too. Keeping my fingers crossed. LOL. Happy reading!

  9. Pink is my favorite color, and I think you have a beautiful blog!

    I enjoyed Jane Austen Ruined My Life. Gary Chapman's work on love languages is very interesting to me. Happy reading!

  10. I love the 5 Love Languages for Children. I have to say Sense and sensibility was the hardest of the Jane Austen books to get into for me but I ended up enjoying it.
    Enjoy your reader! Lucky!

  11. Looks great, Amy! I'm with you -- one book a week would be a bit accomplishment for me! :) Oh, and I'm excited about your e-reader! I love my Kindle. I can't ever abandon "real" books for good, but being able to carry a "stack" of books in my purse is awesome. Thanks for being part of the challenge!
