Spring Reading Thing 2007

In case you haven't noticed, I subscribe and read to several blogs. Brandilyn Collins is a wonderful author whose blog is one that I subscribe to and read on an almost daily basis. In today's posting, she mentioned another author's site (Katrina) and that Katrina had started a Spring Reading Club called the Spring Reading Thing 2007.

First of all, while I love to read, I've always been a little hesitant to join a "reading club." (What if I can't keep up, what if I don't finish all my books, etc.) However, I am excited about the fact that Katrina was going to give some books away during the Spring Reading Thing. Then, a publishing house got wind of her Spring Reading Club, and they have decided to donate books to give away as well. So what does Brandilyn Collins have to do with all this, you ask? She was urging those other authors that are interested in getting some of their books out there to readers to contact Katrina to give them away during the Spring Reading Thing! How fun is that?! Free books, all while trying to get some reading done that I've been "saving!" While this journey officially started March 21 and goes through June 21, I will only list the books that I am starting today onward...

So, here my dear readers, is my "official list" for the Spring Reading Thing:

The Nanny Diaries by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus-DONE!

Thanks for stopping by my list! Kay Hooper is a great author and Meg Cabot makes me laugh. I may have to add more titles as I peruse other lists. :)

Thanks for stopping by my site today and leaving a comment. I'm looking forward to "Before I Wake". Love Dee Henderson!

The Spring Reading Thing is great! There is no pressure. If you don't make your list you don't make your list. It's just nice to have some goals to shoot for. And I love going through everyone's list to get new titles and authors to add! :v) Happy Reading on your great list!

I'm excited about there being no pressure too--as a librarian, I feel like I have to read a lot of the books because they kids want to know about them. This list os just for me. :) Good luck with your list too!

So glad that you're part of the Spring Reading Thing! You know, there are so many reading challenges out there with pressure, that I just like to have one that celebrates reading without making reading stressful in any way!

Your list looks great! Enjoy your reading!
