March 20 – June 20, 2010

This is one of my favorite challenges because it forces me to choose books I really want to read and actually read them. I  get sidetracked so much that this is a great way to  get into reading.

To participate, here’s what you need to do:

  • Create a list of some books you’d like to read or finish this spring.
  • Feel free to set some additional reading goals (such as reading to your kids two hours per week, getting through your pile of magazines, etc.). This is completely optional.
  • Write a blog post including the list of books you want to read and any additional goals you’ve set, and get ready to post it on your blog on March 20th.
  • Visit my blog on March 20th to sign up. I’ll have a Mr. Linky set up that morning, so you can submit a link to your personal Spring Reading Thing post, and it will be added to the master list.
  • Read! Work on your goals throughout Spring 2010.
  • Report your results. Write another blog post in June to let everyone know how you did.
  • Have fun! Visit other participants to see what they’re reading. Write reviews if you’re so inclined. But most of all, enjoy your spring reading.

I’m a couple days late (but it was my birthday weekend) so I’m finally getting my list posted. Last year I had 10 books on my list and that seemed too short. I have a lot of books I need to read this year and in a short amount of time, so I’m increasing that to 15 books, and then a large amount of Nancy Drew books (for the Nancy Drew Challenge).
