It's Time to Begin Reading for SRT 2014

Welcome to Spring Reading Thing 2014!

It is my sincerest hope that you have a great time with this challenge.  I hope you get to read lots of books and that you find a lot of new books for our TBR list.

Briefly here is what you need to do to be a part of Spring Reading Thing 2014:
  • Make a list of books you want to read or finish reading this spring.  Feel free to modify the list as you go along if it isn't working for you.
  • Write a blog post containing your list and submit it to this post using the Mr. Linky below.
  • Check out other participants' lists and add to your own to-read-someday pile!
  • You may begin reading on the 20th!  The challenge goes from March 20th to June 20th.
  • Write a post about your challenge experience in June, telling us all about your experience and whether you reached our goals.  REMEMBER: this is a low-pressure, stressfree challenge that should be fun. As long as you do some reading this spring (and enjoy it!) that's good enough for me.

There is a Mr. Linky at the end of this post.  Please use it to link to your blog post containing your Spring Reading Thing list. Remember to link to your specific post, not just your general blog homepate. People will be stopping by for days or weeks!) and when you link to your specific post, it will make it easier for everyone to find your reading list. Also, if you don't mind, please link back here from your post so that your readers can come check out all the other participants.
