Spring Reading Thing 2010


Time once again for The Spring Reading Thing challenge at Callapidder Days.  Click on the lovely button above to discover what it’s all about.

My challenge is pretty simple this time around:  Finish at least 6 books in two series I have started (3 books in each series.)  The two series are Alexander McCall Smith’s No.1 Ladies Detective Agency and Phillip Gulley’s Harmony series.  I have already read the first five in the Ladies series so the next three are

  • In The Company of Cheerful Ladies
  • Blue Shoes And Happiness
  • The Good Husband of Zebra Drive

In the Harmony series I have read the first two.  The next three are

  • Signs and Wonders
  • Life Goes On
  • A Change of Heart

I should be able to find all these at my library.  I will be reading other books than these, but these are the ones I am challenging myself to read this spring.  That way I won’t feel bad when I do read something other than what’s on my list (which always happens lol!)  I look forward to seeing everyone’s lists and reviews and to reading these two wonderful series!  Thanks to Katrina for hosting this event.  :)



  1. Enjoy your Spring reading. I am behind on the Ladies Detective series.

  2. I haven't read either of these series, but I've been curious about the Ladies Detective Agency books for a long time.

    Thanks for being part of SRT '10!

  3. Ok, I finally wrote it down to get the 1st Ladies Detective Series book from the library & check it out. I've been wanting to & keep forgetting. Happy reading this spring!

  4. I love reading series and like to do them all in one shot. Enjoy yours!

  5. Thanks for stopping by earlier. I love the No.1 Ladies Detective Agency series. I'll have to look into the Harmony series. Good luck with your spring reading!

  6. I like reading series as well. I haven't started McCall's yet. On the back burner until my buying ban is over. Happy reading!

  7. I have always wanted to read the #1 Ladies Detective agency.. I might have to give it a try :-)

  8. Great list, enjoy your books.

    Happy Reading!

  9. Ahhh, Spring reading! Much more fun than Spring cleaning. :)

  10. Great idea to finish reading a series! I will have to think about that next time! I get so distracted by new books that I forget about the ones I've enjoyed starting. Enjoy your books.

  11. That is a great idea to finish a series. I have several series I would love to finish, but probably won't anytime soon.

  12. I haven't read any of the Ladies Detective Agency books but did see a few episodes of the series on dvd. If the books are like the series they should be very good. Enjoy the challenge!


Thanks for stopping by!
