Spring Reading Thing


I'm going to try Katrina's Spring Reading Thing again. We'll see how it goes.

Fiction:

~These Three Remain, Novel Three of Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman series by Pamela Aidan (I'm currently reading)
~A Proper Pursuit by Lynn Austin
~Cold Sassy Tree by Olive Ann Burns
~The Recital by Robert Elmer
~Every Secret Thing by Ann Tatlock
~The Dead Don't Dance & Maggie by Charles Martin

Non-Fiction:

~The Excellent Wife by Martha Peace (Lux Venit Readers' Club selection)
~Simplify Your Time by Marcia Ramsland (currently reading)

I don't have a picture of my stack, since they will all be on loan from the library. See, I'm still keeping my commitment. I was blessed with a Barnes & Noble gift card today...a belated birthday gift from a friend. Praise the Lord!

Great list, Melissa. I've not read any of them so I look forward to reading your reviews. I'm participating, too but have yet to post my list.

I have never heard of Cold Sassy Tree. I can't wait to read your reviews. Do you post that on your blog,or Catrina's?

Katrina said...

Looks good, Melissa! I have Every Secret Thing on my bookshelf, but just haven't read it yet... And I have Simplify Your Time as well (but again, haven't read it...). Thanks for being part of SRT '08!

I have read Cold Sassy Tree many times. I read it once for school and then again for pleasure. :)

The Excellent Wife is, well, excellent!! Very challenging.

Look forward to hearing your thoughts on Cold Sassy Tree. I have this one, but haven't gotten around to reading yet.

I read "The Excellent Wife" for this challenge too. Such a great book for all wives. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
