Welcome to Spring Reading Thing 2011! Just in time, our weather appears to be turning. Sunshine! Warm weather! I have to admit, I won’t mind saying goodbye to winter for a while. I’m more than happy to welcome spring, and with it…Spring Reading Thing 2011!

I hope you’re ready to read! And whatever you’re reading for this challenge, I hope you enjoy each and every book!

Guidelines for the challenge:

  • Make a list of books you want to read (or finish reading) this spring. Your list can be as long or as short as you’d like. (Also, feel free to modify your list during the challenge if it’s not working for you.)
  • Write a blog post containing your list
  • Check out other participants’ lists and add to your own to-read-someday pile!
  • Write a post about your challenge experience in June, telling us all about whether you reached your goals and how Spring Reading Thing went for you. But remember: this is a low-pressure challenge that should be fun. As long as you do some reading this spring (and enjoy it!), that’s good enough.
