Spring Reading Thing 2010

I discovered this wonderful idea at Love To Read For Fun blog. I hope by listing the books I need to read I will stop purchasing more books! I seriously doubt that will happen, but it won't hurt to try.

Spring Reading Thing is hosted by Katrina at Callapidder Days. The challenge is from March 20th - June 20th.

How Spring Reading Thing 2010 works:
- Make a list of books you want to read (or finish reading) this spring. The list can be as long or as short as you want. You can also modify your list during the challenge.
- Write a blog post containing your list and link it here at Callapidder Days.
- Start reading!
- Write a post in June about your challenge experience. Did you reach your goals? How drastically did your list change throughout the challenge?
- Remember: This is a low pressure challenge. Just enjoy!

1. Beyond the Night by Joss Ware
2. The Vampire Queen's Servant by Joey W. Hill

So there it is folks. Yes, I am a book addict. My goal for Junes is to finish the books that I started to read. I am also going to try to read through as many of the books on my TBR pile. So from this time on, NO MORE BOOK BUYING!! Only the new releases that will be coming out.

So I hope you all will wish me luck in this endeavor! This will be the 3rd time that I have said no new books. I'll keep you updated.
