Welcome, fellow book lovers!
You know it's officially Spring when Katrina at Callapiddar Days puts up the button for her Spring Reading Thing. Hers is a fun, low-pressure reading challenge open to anyone and everyone who loves books and likes to talk about books. It will take place March 20th-June 20th.
Those of you who are reading this and already signed up for SRT, you know what it's all about. For those who don't, in short, here's what you need to do: Make a list of books you'd like to read or finish this Spring, share it in a post with other SRT participants, READ, and then write a post letting everyone know how you did.
Here's my list. I'm keeping it short and reserve the right to change this list at any time without prior approval from anyone but me;) In other words, I like to read as the spirit moves me.
* An Absence So Great by Jane Kirkpatrick (I'll be having a book giveaway for this one next week. Stay tuned!)
* Ahab's Wife by Sena Jeter Nasalund (This is for my book club's April meeting. I think most everyone has read it. Except my book club.)
* An Irish Country Doctor by Patrick Taylor. (A friend loaned me this book, saying it is a lot like the Mitford series by Jan Karon.)
* Helen of Troy by Margaret George (I've read one other book by Margaret George, Mary of Magdalene, and it is on my top 10 list of favorite books.)
I am heading over to Katrina's to sign up!
