Spring Reading Thing 2010



Yes, it's true. I'm joining another challenge. But this one isn't like the others! The Spring Reading Thing just requires me to make a list of the books I'll read during the season of Spring, and read them. That's it. So I'm including books that will help me meet my other challenge goals and this will just be an added incentive to finish them by June 20th. I'm leaving space to read a few additional publisher reviews as well.

Here's a list of the books I plan to read from March 20 - June 20, 2010:
The book club, Local Authors and Birth Year books will also apply to the Support Your Local Library Challenge, since I plan to borrow most of those from the library.

    2. While I've never read it, my sisters-in-law have. Have your kleenex ready for The Glass Castle. They enjoyed it very much but said it sad.

    Getting back to blogging

    It seems that blogging has dropped to the bottom of my list for the past year, and was pretty low for the year or two prior to that. I love to read, and am continuing to do so, but as my regular readers know I haven't been around much. My last blog post was almost a year ago!!

    There are many things that have taken me away from blogging. Work has been much more challenging and interesting these past few years, but that means I really don't want to get back on the computer when I get home at night - or on the weekends.

    Family life has been more busy with kids having multiple activities in the evenings, leaving little time to just hang out and write about the books that I read.

    I will admit to a bit of a Facebook addiction, which means way too much time spent scrolling through my newsfeed instead of doing something more productive. This is one of the things I'm working on and hoping that this will free up some time for getting back to the blog.

    Overall, life is good. Work is …
