Quick, before I get Sidetrack'd

Spring Reading Thing

Thoughtfully penned on March 23rd, 2007 and generally concerning Blogging News, Sidetrack'd, Spring

Yes, it is about books once again; as you know, I *heart* books. One of the things I enjoy about the mommy-blogging realm is that I can always find new book recommendations; my “to-read” list is longer now than it has ever been. And now, Katrina at Callapidder Days is hosting a Spring Reading Thing. The challenge goes from March 21 through June 21 (thus, spring reading thing). To check out what others are reading and to get some book ideas for yourself click on the logo above.

I thought I would join in and set some reading goals for myself; I’ve chosen 4 non-fiction, 5 fiction, and 6 books of the Bible. I reserve the right to add to, change, or alter this list at any time and in anyway over the next 3 months.

The Mommy Manual by Barbara Curtis
The Ragamuffin Gospel by Brennan Manning
No Holds Barred: Wrestling with God in Prayer by Mark D. Roberts
1776 by David McCullough

The Double Bind by Chris Bohjalian
Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
The Yada Yada Prayer Group by Neta Jackson
Peace Like a River by Leif Enger
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen (re-read)

Bible Reading:
Proverbs (I’ve been reading Proverbs throughout March)
1 Corinthians
2 Corinthians

Noise from the peanut gallery

  1. Hi! I just joined the Spring Reading Thing too! I wanted to say that I read “Sense and Sensibility” a couple of months ago and just loved it! Such beautiful language!

    I’ve also been eyeing “1776″ for a mighty long time now and look forward to your review!

    Have a blast reading!


  2. Welcome aboard! You moms with young children and good reading habits put us old moms to shame!

  3. Shopaholic is such a fun read. Sense and Sensibility is a great read, one of Austen’s best.

  4. I’ve heard great things about The Double Bind…I’m sure I’ll eventually read that one too!

    Happy Spring Reading!!

  5. Great list! I’ve seen 1776 & The Yada Yada Prayer Group on other lists, can’t wait to check out a review for them. I need to add Confessions Of A Shopaholic to my list. Happy Reading! =)

  6. Looks like a great list! I finished The Mommy Manual a couple weeks ago and it has LOTS of highlighting in it now, lots of stuff I want to make sure I implement. Thanks for joining the challenge. Enjoy your books!

  7. Confessions of a Shopaholic…I have always wanted to read that! I hope it is good. Happy Reading.

  8. I am almost finished studying Nehemiah online with Beth Moore. It has been excellent! 1776 is on lots of other lists. I may have to read that one in the fall as I love history.

  9. Ooh, Confessions of a Shopaholic is a good book – funny! I also enjoyed Yada Yada Prayer Group. Happy reading!

  10. I love the Shopaholic and the Yada Yada books.

  11. We have a few books in common (1776 and Double Bind)! We will have to compare notes! Happy reading!

  12. This is the second list I’ve seen 1776 on. I like non-fiction and even history, but more cultural type of history, so I’m not sure if I’ll be able to read this.

  13. [...] so I have to admit that I’ve fallen off the wagon with my Spring Reading Thing list. I have been reading, but I’ve only finished 2 of the books on my original list (see book [...]
