Spring Reading Thing Recap

Well, today wraps up the Spring Reading Thing challenge over at Callapidder Days. If you participated, how'd you do? I did pretty fair on my list. I had 11 books and I actually got 8 of them read. There were a few that I just didn't get around to and a few more that weren't on the list that I read anyway. I did get reviews done on all of the ones I read that were on my original list. If you're wondering about a certain book, you can most likely find a review on this list (there are over 400 reviews from the challenge!). This was the first time that I've participated in one of Katrina's challenges and it was good, fun accountablility. Hopefully she'll have another challenge for us this Fall.

I still have quite a little stack beside my nightstand that I'm working on.
  • The Shack, by William P. Young(currently reading)
  • Educating the Wholehearted Child, by Clay & Sally Clarkson (currently reading)
  • The Frazzled Female, by Cindi Wood (currently reading)
  • Making Children Mind without Losing Yours, by Dr. Kevin Leman (currently reading)
  • The Mission of Motherhood, by Sally Clarkson
  • Finding Your Way, by Tommy Tenney
  • The Road Home, by Tommy Tenny & Mark Andrew Olsen
  • Surprised by Joy, by C.S. Lewis
  • Gift From the Sea, by Anne Morrow Lindbergh (a re-read, but its just a great summer read!)

And I'm sure I'll find some more! I'd love to hear what you're reading right now.

Wow, you are one productive young lady!!!! MY ADD won't allow me to read more than one book at a time! I hope you are enjoying The Shack!!!!

I'll start by saying we have something like three million books at our house, but here are a few favorites:

Shepherding a Child's Heart by Tedd Tripp is an excellent non-fiction book (it kind of goes along with your Leman choice).

The Smart Chick Mysteries by Mindy Starns Clark (a series of three that must be read in order...The Trouble With Tulip, Blind Dates Can Be Murder, and Elementary My Dear Watkins) is one of my favorite light Christian mystery choices.

I'm going to look into some of those on your list too. Have fun reading!

What a good idea to link to the reviews on Katrina's site, it is a great resource!

It would be interesting to hear what you thought of the Shack, I have heard so many conflicting views on that book. People seem to either love it or strongly dislike it.

Good job, Lora! Hope to see you again for the Fall challenge!

You did a great job. I will have to check out some of your book reviews at Katrina's site!

Wow! You did great! Looks like a lot of fun! I'll have to try it this fall...thought about doing it this spring, but my reading list isn't too diverse (or fun) these days--it basically consists of any number of books on 3 subjects: child training/sleep training (for babies), diet and weightloss (those stinkin last 15 pounds!), and buying/selling a home.

For example, right now I'm reading Hints on Child Training by Trumball (forgot his first name...it was recommended in Sally Clarkson's book), The Biggest Loser Fitness Program, and House Selling for Dummies. :)

So, what did you think of Sally's book(s)?

I like Kevin Leman's books too!
Have you seen his great videos?
