Spring Read Thing 2011 Wrap-Up

Happy Summer!  For those of us in Florida, Summer actually started in January, but for the rest of you--welcome to the season of ice-cold lemonade and juicy seedless watermelon.  (I'm hungry already...be back shortly.)

In the Spring, I signed up to be a part of the Spring Read Thing 2011 hosted by Katrina at Callapidder Days.  (You can read my original post here.)  I think I've faired pretty well during this Reading Challenge--even though I didn't stick to my original list.

I did end up reading about 15 books total.  Several of which were non-fiction, a genre I don't really read a whole lot.  GoodReads also informs me that I'm still about 24 books behind to reach my reading goal for the year, but I am still proud to have been able to read those 15 books.  After all, I had the end of a hectic school year to wrap up (anyone need a good librarian?) and I had to find a new place to live (rent is going up way too high for my budget).  In any case, I will be posting reviews to several of the books I read within the next week or so.

Did you participate in the Spring Read Thing 2011?  How did you do on your reading goals?  Any favorites that I need to add to my reading list?   Let me know what you think!  Happy Reading!

Fifteen books is a great accomplishment especially with lots on your plate. Way to go.

Fifteen books in the middle of a busy school year sounds like success to me! Especially if you're adding in that nonfiction, which can consume more time and brain power. :) Good job!

Wow, 15, you did really really well. I am not a consistent reader, so I'd never sign up for a year-long quota. Good for you!
