Even though it has felt like Summer for awhile now, at least in my neck of the woods, Summer is just now ready to make its official start.
I made a personal goal for myself this spring to read between 30 and 40 books. Right now I am sitting at 31 so I guess I just made it.
For the official Spring Reading Thing Challenge I set a goal of 10 books that would help me accomplish other reading challenges that were ending during the spring or shortly thereafter.
I am happy to say that I read all 10 books and as of right now I have completed 7 reading challenges this year.
Here are the books I read for the Spring Reading Thing:
Black Beauty Anna Sewell
The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood by Howard Pyle
Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum
All of a Kind Family by Sydney Taylor
Behind Rebel Lines by Seymour Reit
Mary Poppins by P.L. Travers
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn Betty Smith
Under the Greenwood Tree by Thomas Hardy
Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton
Lots of good books on this list, as well as a few duds. My favorites were A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Under the Greenwood Tree and Ethan Frome.
The Spring Reading Thing was hosted by Katrina at Callapidder Days. Thanks Katrina!
