I am so eager to start Callapidder Days' Spring Reading Thing challenge that I actually initially pecked out this post on my Blackberry from my hotel room in Orlando where I am camped out for a week doing some training for work! Now I am in the hotel computer center to add the links and logo but the most important part is, of course, the list! I did pretty well sticking to my list with the Fall Into Reading challenge so I am hoping to do as well this time.
First off is a biography of Thomas Jefferson by R. B. Bernstein that I am reading for the U.S. Presidents Reading Project.
For the Facebook Historical Fiction book club I have the March selection Cleopatra's Daughter by Michelle Moran . And,time for the April selection, The Russian Concubine by Kate Furnivall will be here before we know it!
Everyone I know has already read Life of Pi by Yann Martel so I feel the need to get that one read so I can have an opinion. (What I have heard is that it is worth slogging through the whole book just to enjoy the ending.)
I've got a book or two on my reading list for work - Making Connections; Teaching and the Human Brain by Caine and Caine and The Out of Sync Child by Kranowitz and Miller.
And, lastly is all my books for the Shelf Discovery Challenge. I thought I was dead in the water with one but then was happily made aware that the challenge runs until April 30th. (Apparently there were some overachievers - you know who you are - who finished the challenge early and did their wrap ups! Me, I'm more of a last minute kind of girl!) So for that challenge I have these six books....
