Spring Reading Thing 2008


Spring Reading Thing 2008 is simply an opportunity for you to set some reading goals, share them with the blogosphere, and work toward them this spring. Perhaps you want to add some variety to your fiction reading. Or maybe you've had very good intentions as far as reading that book on budgeting or marriage or starting a home business, but...you haven't even cracked the cover yet. Some might want to read more with their children; others might feel guilty for never having read Wuthering Heights.Or maybe you just love to read and want to share your reading list and check out everyone else's.If any of those situations resonate with you, then the Spring Reading Thing is for you!
A few more details:
Who: Anyone! Everyone! If you read, you can join Spring Reading Thing 2008.What: Spring Reading Thing 2008 is a casual, low-pressure challenge. The point is simply to provide motivation to read, and to provide an opportunity to set some goals or structure for your personal (or family) reading. As a participant, all you'll have to do is make a list of books you'd like to read (or books you'd like to finish!) this spring. We'll share our goals with each other, and then share our experience and results when the challenge is over.
When: I bet you can guess: Spring 2008. The official dates are March 20th through June 19th.
Where: Here at Callapidder Days http://www.callapidderdays.blogspot.com/
and on blogs all over the blogosphere. I'll put up a Mr. Linky on March 20th where everyone can submit a link to their own Spring Reading Thing 2008 blog post. All I ask is that you share your goals and list of books in your post, and that you include a link back to the post here that contains the Mr. Linky.
Why: Because I love reading, and I know many of you do, too. Because I enjoyed meandering from book to book all winter, but am ready to set some goals and work through those "I've been meaning to read that" books on my shelf. Because I love to see what everyone else is reading. Because it's fun to read together. Because we can all use a little encouragement, motivation, and camaraderie in our reading adventures.
How: Spring Reading Thing 2008 starts in only two weeks, so start thinking about your goals now. Keep a list. Make a pile. Dig out the books that are under your bed. Visit the library. Pick up a coffee and browse the aisles at Barnes & Noble. Before long, you'll have an idea of what you want to read this spring. Work on your post and then come back here on March 20th, ready to submit your link!
