Spring Reading Thing Wrap Up

Spring is over, and so is the Spring Reading Thing 2010 Challenge, hosted by Katrina at Callapidder Days.  The idea of the challenge is simply to make a list of books to read, and read them!  Easy enough, right? 

 I was easily distracted this spring.  I was hoping to catch up on some books that have been on my bookshelf, but I had so many great books come across my path that I could not resist.  I received some wonderful books for review that I would not have picked up if it weren't for my blog, and for that I am eternally grateful. 
Here are my stats for the challenge:

Books on Original List:  37
Books Read From Original List:  27
Books Added to Original List:  15
Books Read but Not Reviewed Yet (in bold): 9
Total Books Read AND Reviewed (links to reviews):  33
Total Books Read: 42

Not too shabby!

I think you did fantastic! I have trouble sticking with reading lists because I get distracted by shiny new books that come into my house.

Nely said...

You did amazing. I love this challenge too only because it helps me clear some of the clutter on my shelves. :D

Nise' said...

Wow, you had a great Spring! I'm trying not to be envious that you've read Hornet's Nest! I am waiting for it.

Katrina @ Callapidder Days said...

Um, yeah. I'd say 42 books is nowhere near shabby. Great job! (I hear you on the easily distracted thing... New books call my name often...)

Rana said...

Great job. Mr. Darcy broke my heart sounds interesting. I'll have to check that one out.

Bermuda Onion - "shiny new books" YES, I know what you mean! :)

Nely - I can't imagine you have clutter on your bookshelves! I do love this challenge though!

Nise' - I have to thank Random House for sending me Hornet's Nest! They are so good to me. I was pleasantly surprised to see the snazzy SILVER cover in the bookstore! Come back and let me know what you think of it!

Katrina - Thank you, thank you, thank you! I love your blog, and I especially love these challenges of yours. I don't do many challenges throughout the year, and this one is great!

Rana - I liked Jane Austen Ruined My Life better than Mr. Darcy Broke My Heart, so you might want to pick that one up as well! Enjoy it, and let me know what you think!

Lori said...

Some great titles there. Nice job!

42 books - wow! I need to put up my wrap-up but I don't think I have even read 1/2 that many books in spring! Well - there is always summer!
