Spring Reading Challenge 2009

I am joining the Spring Reading Challenge 2009 hosted by Susan at, http://asoutherndaydreamerreads.blogspot.com/2009/03/spring-reading-challenge-2009-sign-up.html. I am very excited about this. Having this bond of bloggers reading together is great. It gives the motivation to fit in time for reading. I love to read and in earlier years would read all the time. However, as children came along, and with other responsibilities ( which I love also!) there just seems very little time to read. But, a challenge like this seems to give me the push to carve out time for reading. I'm even thinking of making a special reading nook, maybe in the bedroom. I also think I will have a reading challenge with my boys. They read quite a bit, so a reading challenge would suite them fine. My list of books that I want to read during this challenge are:
The No Spin Zone-Bill O'Reilly
Emma-Jane Austen
Continue reading the Bible on the one year plan
Rocket Boys-Homer H. Hickam, Jr.
Laura, America's First Lady, First Mother-Antonia Felix
Brave New World-Aldous Huxley
George and Laura, Portrait of An American Marriage-Christopher Andersen
The Raising of A President-Doug Wead
All The Best, George Bush,My Life in Letters and Other Writings-George Bush
A Memoir, Barbara Bush-Barbara Bush
The Kennedy Women-Laurence Leamer
What Would Jackie Do?-Shelly Branch and Sue Callaway
The Hiding Place-Corrie Ten Boom

Well, I am off to do some reading! Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Looks like a great list of books!


Pam said...

I should probably do this so I will remember all the books that different publishers keep sending me. : )
I am behind!

Mary @ Neat and Tidy said...

You have listed some books that sound very interesting. I'm heading to the library tomorrow.....

Sue said...

I found that with raising kids I didn't have as much time for reading either which is also something I love doing. Now, though I am able to read, read, and read some more so it is kind of nice!
Have fun with all that great reading!

I'm doing Susan's Spring Reading Challenge too so thought I would pop over to see how everyone is doing. You have some of my favorite books on your list. I got to visit The Hiding Place a couple of years ago. I hope you love that book as much as I do.
