Spring Reading Thing 2011

In the fall, I participated in the Fall Into Reading 2010 challenge – and did pretty well! I got 20 books off my To Read list. Granted, Miss C was still a little wee baby then, spending hours nursing and sleeping in arms, so I had a LOT of reading time… 🙂  It might be a bit different this time around! But I still like a challenge!

And so, here is my reading list for March 20th to June 20th. I may add or change up some books in this list as we go along, depending on my mood… 🙂

25 books, plus some magazines, in 3 months (or 12 weeks). Think I can pull it off?
