Spring Reading Thing 2008—My List

The Spring Reading Thing 2008 started on March 20th. I started reading then, but I'm just now getting my full list posted. Katrina and I do alternate challenges. She does Spring and Fall; I do Summer and Winter. I hope all who participated (or thought about participating) in my Winter Challenge will go over to Callapidder Days and sign up to do this Spring Challenge as well. (Katrina's prizes are great!)

I love these reading challenges. They get my blood going. There's just something about committing to reading a pile of books that MAKES ME DO IT.

I'm sure I'll add to these lists. I always do. But this should get me started. Now, where'd I put that book I was reading yesterday. . .

Good luck with the challenge - I'm already onto my second book and feeling very proud of myself ;)

Susan said...

Are all of your fiction books by LDS authors? Which are your favorites? I'm going to try to read the Whitney nominees and winners SOMETIME this year. Good luck with the challenge!

Katrina said...

Glad you signed up. I was wondering where you were. :) Thanks, as always, for being part of the challenge, and for encouraging others to read with your challenges too!

Tristi Pinkston said...

You've got some very interesting books on that list . . . one in particular . . .

Wasn't Jessica Day George a hoot? I loved her presentation and her acceptance speech. She's so funny.

I'm trying to read more. I want to read all the Whitney winners I haven't already read.

And, I've had a great reaction to the perfume samples. Thanks :)
