Spring Reading Thing 2009 Wrap Up


Yep, spring is officially over and so is the 2009 Spring Reading Thing challenge hosted at Callapidder Days.  Let’s see how I did!

These are the books I picked for the challenge:

Amy Knapp’s Family Organizing Handbook

Get Your Act Together

Absolutely Organized (I see some kind of trend here…)

The Devil In The Junior League

Miss Read Over the Gate

Miss Read Village Diary

The Reader

The Friday Night Knitting Club

This is what I actually read:

Miss Read Over The Gate

Miss Read Village Diary

The Reader

The Kite Runner

The Ladies of Missalonghi

The Widow of the South

On Gold Mountain

Not too shabby!  And technically, I did skim through those organizational books I had on my list.  I hardly ever get all the way through a non-fiction book.  I skim, take in what is important to me, and call it done.  :)

My favorite of the bunch?  Probably The Ladies of Missalonghi, simply because it had such an interesting and unexpected ending.  I enjoyed The Kite Runner for it’s well written and emotional story.  The Miss Read books were just fun reads. :)

I enjoyed my reading this spring and I enjoyed visiting fellow SRT participants.  Thank, Katrina, it was fun as always.


  1. Good job! I have a hard time reading straight through organizational books. For me they work better when I can use them for reference, or just read the chapters/sections that I can apply right then...

    Thanks for being part of the challenge!

  2. Congratulations on doing such a fine job!

  3. Congratulations! Great selection of books.

  4. Excellent job! I loved Ladies of Missalonghi.

  5. Good job on the challenge! Some great titles here.

  6. Great job on the challenge - I've got Devil in the Junior league waiting as well. Your 2008 list in the sidebar has a lot of books I enjoyed on it!


Thanks for stopping by!
