Spring Reading Thing is Almost Over

Another challenge is coming to an end.  This year's Spring Reading Thing ends at Midnight Friday, June 20th.  Remember You will need to write a wrap up post.  Let us know how you did. On Saturday the 21st I will have a Mr. Linky list up for you to link to your wrap up  post. You will have until Midnight June 24th to post your link.  I will draw a name shortly after that and post the winners on the 25th of June.  Remember I will be giving away two $20 Amazon Gift Cards.

As much as I enjoy participating in this and the Fall Into Reading Challenge I am not going to be able to continue to host them.  My duties at school and with writing curriculum for our county has made it difficult to stay up with the challenges.  If someone would like to take over these challenges please feel free.  I would appreciate letting me know so that I can continue to participate.  I almost forgot this year as I was dealing with my mother's fall where she broke both feet and her right ankle.  This was followed by the death of her sister who fell two days after my mother fell and died a week later. Between that and school I don't feel like I did justice to all of you.  For that I apologize.  I look forward to seeing what you have read.    If you have questions for me after the challenge ends please feel free to contact me with them.  Please be advised I probably won't answer you until the evening as next week is my last week for the summer of curriculum writing.  Thank you for participating.  I have enjoyed reading your list and for some of you reading reviews you have written.  Thank you for joining me in this wonderful challenge.

  1. Sorry to hear that you won't be able to continue the challenge but I do understand. So sorry to hear about your aunt and hope your mom is recovering well. I am going to have to check my list and see how I did, not even sure what was on my list but I did get some big ones done. I have 350 pgs left in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, maybe I can finish before tonight (wishful thinking). :)

  2. I will continue to participate. The curriculum changes along with all the other changes in our district has made it difficult to keep up with everything. This is supposed to be a stress free challenge and I became more stressed trying to do it. If no one picks it up then I will because I believe it is a very important challenge.
