Spring Reading Thing 2009

I'm just throwing this up for now. I may come back later and add pictures of books, teasers from the back cover, etc. But..the important part is just getting the list done. I'm already like number 170 something - what a great response! Click on the logo above to find out more about Spring Reading Thing and you can sign up too!

4. John Adams by David McCullough

Then I have my April book club selection...

An audiobook that's sitting in the car waiting...
6.0. This Rock by Robert Morgan

And some others from my TBR stack....

Looks like a great list. I loved Pillars of the Earth. Hopefully you will be able to finish it this go round.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and introducing me to yours. I am debating between reading Revolutionary Road or waiting for the dvd. I will be on the lookout for your review. Also to see what you think of John Adams. I really like David McCullough in interviews but have attempted two of his books and could not get into them.
