Spring Reading Thing, 2008

Late, late, late to the party. But what a fun party it is! I’ve participated in Callapidder Days’ reading events twice before, and they give me permission to read. Understand, I do a lot of reading as part of the blog tours I’m involved with. And I do a little reading (not as much as I should) to help me improve as a writer. But sometimes … sometimes I like to read, just because.

But alas, the Spring Reading Thing is already well underway, having started back on March 20. At the time I was busy with All Things Mount Hermon, and didn’t think a thing about reading. Regardless, I plan to forge ahead, and will even add books to my list that I read during the first month of the Thing.

The only thing I’m missing out on by starting late is eligibility for a $10 Amazon gift certificate drawing. A perfect gift for a reading Thing, by the way.

Did I mention that there are also book give-aways involved? Yep. Check out the offerings. Most are for women since Callapidder Days might be considered something of a Mommy Blog. Good deal. If Mommys want to join in and read, I’m all for it. Still, I think it only fair to warn the good number of male visitors who stop by A Christian Worldview of Fiction, some of these book give-aways are definitely not for you! 😮

On to my list:

Amber Morn, Brandilyn Collins (Zondervan, 2008)
Assassin’s Apprentice, Robin Hobb (Bantam Books, 1995)
Ryann Watters and the King’s Sword, Eric Reinhold (Strang, 2008)
Symphony of Secrets, Sharon Hinck (Bethany, 2008)
Gilead, Marilynne Robinson (Farrar, Straus, Giroux; 2004)
Any Bitter Thing, Monica Wood (Chronicle Books, 2005)
Beyond the Reflection’s Edge, Bryan Davis (Zondervan, 2008)
DragonLight, Donita Paul (WaterBrook, 2008)
Five books I am reading as a judge for a contest, hereafter to be referred to as contest book 1, contest book 2, contest book 3, contest book 4, and contest book 5. 😉

  1. Becky,
    I want to play! I’m going to have to sign up for this thing too. Maybe later today or tomorrow. I love this kind of stuff. A motivation to read more books. Books that I get to choose. Oh, it doesn’t get much more fun than that!

    Thanks for the idea–
    🙂

  3. Heh heh heh, I loved Cool Dudes, too, Sally. I created them by accident, but liked what I saw!

    Merrie, I like the fact that the Reading Event puts me in touch with more readers, not just writers. Some very interesting reviews come from the group.
