Spring Reading Thing ’11

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?

April 10th edit: I’ve added a couple of books to my list, which now brings it over 25 books. I’m going to maintain my goal of 25 books, meaning I might not read all the books in my list – I tend to choose my next book based on what I feel like at the moment rather than a set in stone list, anyway… 😉 The total in my “Books Left to Read” includes those listed in “Next Up”, as they are also Left to Read. .
