Spring Reading Thing 2011

Spring is upon us (HOORAY!!) and I’ve decided to join Katrina in the Spring Reading Thing 2011!

I don’t have much free time, but I choose to spend a lot of that time reading! It’s a priority for me and I know reading is such a valuable thing.

This will be my first SRT challenge and I can’t wait to get started!! (but oh-so glad this is a low-pressure challenge!)

Several of these are future reads for my book club. Trying to do my best to stay ahead of the game! :-)

Northanger Abby by Jane Austen
Heidi by Johanna Spyri
Anne of Avonlea by LM Montgomery
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
Velma Still Cooks In Leeway by Vinita Hampton Wright
A Girl Named Zippy by Haven Kimmel
Marley & Me by John Grogan
Don’t Make Me Count to Three by Ginger Plowman
Twelve Extraordinary Women by John MacArthur
Vintage Remedies Guide to Real Food by Jessie Hawkins

There you have it.
Ten books.

Well…. unless I add the two books I started back in December which are STILL sitting on my nightstand only half finished!

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
and
The Wide Wide World by Susan Warner

We hope to move in the somewhat-near-future so I’m refraining from making this list any longer. I consider myself a “new-reader” having discovered the joy of reading only about 4 years ago… sooo… I’m not really sure how much I can read in a season! But I KNOW this is going to be fun!!

Check out my full list of “to-be-read” books on GoodReads.

    Good for you for making reading a priority! I read Marley & Me a couple years ago — keep tissues nearby. :) Thanks for being part of SRT '11 — enjoy your spring reading!

    I have read the Ginger Plowman book, and found it very encouraging and VERY practical for every day situations. She does not spend too much of the book convincing us why we need to discipline. This leaves room for tons of put into practice now ideas. Happy reading!
