Spring Reading Challenge (Rock Creek Rumblings)


Rock Creek Rumblings' Spring Reading Challenge officially begins today. Here is the link to the sign-up post. (Also where the rules are to be found.) This one is simple. Make a list of books to read in the months of March, April, and May. Post a link of your list (and your intentions of reading said list) in the comments of that post. I'm hoping to read at least eight of the following. (If 8 is the # I achieve, I'll be pleased. If more, great. If less, I'll be disappointed.)

Your list is huge! I had to go back and read your comment at Rock Creek Rumblings to see that you hope to read 8 of these. I feel a little better about my much shorter list, now. Happy Reading!
