  1. I'm tempted to join but haven't decided yet.

    Why are there SIX books on this list that you've already started reading? How many do you have going at once?

  2. I would really like to join this challenge. I made a list off books but haven't gotten around to doing a post yet.

    I just finished the Ten Year Nap and will be posting my review soon. I'm curious to see what you thought. It was such a mixed bag for me.

    The 19th Wife is also on my list. I'm looking forward to it because I have heard such great things about it.

  3. Great stack of books for your Spring reading. I have The Boy Who Dared & Cross Country on my stack too. Enjoyed Book of a Thousand Days.
