Since I signed up for the Once Upon A Time reading challenge, I wondered what Callapidder Days, another blog where I joined last year’s Fall Into Reading Challenge 2009, had up for this season. I was delighted to find out that it started Spring Reading Thing 2010. Its time period of March 20-June 20, 2010 coincides nicely with my other reading challenge.
Although spring is non-existent where I’m at, and instead I’m right smack in the middle of a burning summer, this challenge is still right up my alley because one has the choice of piling on the pressure or not. That and the fact that I love to collect pretty buttons for my sidebar.
All this challenge wants is that you set your reading goals, whatever they may be, and simply enjoy your books. No pressure for reviews, blog posts, number of books to read, and all that. Hopefully on the way, this challenge will help you discover new books and authors through reviews posted by more blog-inclined members.
For this challenge, I shall use the same list of books I have set in Once Upon A Time IV . Kill two birds with one stone, and all that…
Again, my list :
1. Anansi Boys —- Neil Gaiman
2. Last of the Amazons —- Steven Pressfield
3. The Secret Ingredient — Jane Heller
4. Mortal Love —- Elizabeth Hand
5. Hush, Hush —– Becca Fitzpatrick
I’ll definitely be adding more if I get to be done with this list before time’s up, my ultimate goal being to reduce ze TBR pile. In this vein, another self-imposed law then is necessary: no new books! Everything must come from my pile as of this date, March 23.
With these two goals in mind, it’s on with the challenge…
