I'm currently trying to finish my Spring Reading Thing list by the June 21 deadline.* But the seasons start to change, whether we're ready for it or not, and the Summer Reading Challenge starts today! I have posted my list over at the SRC blog, where I will also be periodically posting about the things I'm reading. (By the way, if you're not already participating, you can still sign up through June 7.)
In attempting to create my SRC list, I considered several possibilities for a theme: biographies/autobiographies, time travel books (since i've been interested in those lately), and selections from my piles of books purchased from the local library surplus sales, among other ideas. I finally decided to pick five novels by one author - Jodi Picoult. You may have noticed that I've read two of her books already this year - My Sister's Keeper and The Pact - and I'm very interested in reading more of her - so my Summer Reading Challenge list is as follows:
- Vanishing Acts (2005)
- Nineteen Minutes (2007)
- Plain Truth (1999)
- The Tenth Circle (2006)
- Perfect Match (2002)
*I doubt I'm going to succeed, as I realize now that the goal I set was a bit too challenging!
