It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Spring Reading Thing Reading Challenge Kick-off post

Spring Reading Thing
Reading Challenge
March 20 to June 20

hosted by Sandra at The Musings of a Book Addict filling in for Katrina at Callapidder Days

Sign- up here anytime during the challenge unless you want prizes!

Briefly here is what you need to do to be a part of Spring Reading Thing 2013:
  • Make a list of books you want to read or finish reading this spring. Feel free to modify the list as you go along if it isn't working for you.
  • Write a blog post containing your list and submit it to this post using the Mr. Linky on the sign-up page.
  • Check out other participants' lists and add to your own to-read-someday pile!
  • You may begin reading on the 20th!
  • Write a post about your challenge experience in June, telling us all about your experience and whether you reached our goals. REMEMBER: this is a low-pressure, stress free challenge that should be fun. As long as you do some reading this spring (and enjoy it!) that's good enough for me.
