While checking out some of the links at the Spread the Love link party over at The Steadfast Reader, I encountered a couple of posts about the Spring Reading Thing. The Spring Reading Thing is an event hosted by The Musings of a Book Addict. Sandra invites us to organize our reading for spring with a list of potential books to read this season. There are prizes available to those whose lists and wrap-up posts are linked in a timely manner — that’s tomorrow for the initial list!
I’m organizing my list by topic because of something Bryan at Still Unfinished wrote about today — I need balance in my reading!
finish Quicksilver by Neal Stephenson
finish Clockwork Universe by Edward Dolnick
The Illustrated Longitude by Dava Sobel
Jane Austen’s England by Roy and Leslie Adkins

That’s a total of 23 books, so probably at least 5 more than I’ll really read. But I want to read them all, so I’m not going to make a choice right now!
What are your reading plans for spring?
