Spring Reading Challenge

Well it's that time of the year again! Katrina at Callapidder Days is issuing out the command to get our reading lists out and done!

"I can't wait to see what everyone will be reading this spring. Whether you're reading for fun, for inspiration, for learning, or just to force yourself to finish up those half-read books, I hope you enjoy every page!"

So without further adieu is here is my list for the challenge! (I will be having reviews for most of the books up on my blog once I am finished with the book, so this is a preview of what is to come for the next few months). Note: These are all my library books, which means these MUST be read by the end of the challenge or face the wrath of fines! I haven't listed books I own because I don't know if I'll get around to them, but they might pop up at the end of the challenge on my list.

  15. RYC: I have seen the preview for BECOMING JANE. I'm intrigued by it...think Anne Hathaway is an interesting choice to play Jane. Not sure how I'll like it...but like I said, I'm intrigued.

    Maybe I should do this Spring Reading Challenge...I need something to give me the proverbial kick in the pants to get on track with my reading.


  16. Just a reminder about the Carnival of Blogging Chicks at Texas RV Travel blog
