Spring Reading Thing 2009

It's that time of year again, and as usual I cannot say no to a challenge hosted by Katrina, of Callapider Days. I'm a bit late signing up for Spring Reading Thing, but better late than never.

Here are the rules (taken from Callapider Days):

1. Make a list of books you want to read (or finish reading) this spring. Your list can be as long or as short as you’d like. (Also, feel free to modify your list during the challenge if it’s not working for you.)

2. Write a blog post containing your list and submit it to this post using the Mr. Linky below. (Please do not put your name on the Mr. Linky before you have your post done, and please link directly to your Spring Reading Thing post. If you don’t, your entry will be deleted. Read this post for more information.)

3. Get reading! The challenge goes from today, March 20th, through June 20th.
Check out other participants’ lists and add to your own to-read-someday pile!

4. Write a post about your challenge experience in June, telling us all about whether you reached your goals and how the Spring Reading Thing went for you. Oh, and if you don’t finish your books, or if you change your list half-way through, or if you only read two books…it’s OKAY. This is a low-pressure challenge that should be fun. As long as you do some reading this spring (and enjoy it!), that’s good enough for me.

My list:

I want to finish reading Lucy Maud Montgomery: The Gift of Wings by Mary Henley Rubio. ***Completed on April 11, 2009

The Hound of the Baskervilles by Conan Conan Doyle

Life of Pi by Yann Martel

A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry

The Tale of Despereaux by Kate Di Camillo

North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell

The Mysteries of Udolpho by Ann Radcliffe ***Completed on April 22, 2009

Black Beauty by Anna Sewell ***Completed on March 30th, 2009

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee ***Completed on April 29th, 2009

You can sign up here.

Happy reading!

Black Beauty is still one of my childhood favorites. Just re-read To Kill A Mockingbird when my son had to read it in English class.
