My internet friend Katrina of Callapidder Days hosts the Spring Reading Thing, a reading challenge where we the participants post a list of the books we hope to read through the next three months (Spring, as it were). At the end of the challenge, we then post a synopsis (or confessional) of what we read and didn’t, what we liked and didn’t.
I’ve participated in most of Katrina’s Spring Reading Things (and its sister, Fall Reading Thing, which takes place each September appropriately enough) ever since I was a newbie blogger. It’s lots of fun to see what others are reading; plus Katrina has prizes and giveaways! So, in the name of nostalgia and fun, friendship and books, here are my personal reading goals for this Spring:
Let the Reader Understand: A Guide to Interpreting and Applying the Bible by McCartney and Clayton (currently reading)
When People are Big and God is Small: Overcoming Peer Pressure, Codependency and the Fear of Man by Welch (currently reading)
Spiritual Depression: Its Causes and Cures by Lloyd-Jones
Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God by Packer
A Chance to Die: The Life and Legacy of Amy Carmichael by Elliott
Home by Robinson
Hotel on the Corner and Bitter and Sweet by Ford
Same Kind of Different as Me by Hall and Moore
The Age of Innocence by Wharton
It’s a pretty ambitious list, particularly given the fact that I have a stack of books to be read and reviewed for 5 Minutes for Books! The good thing is, there is no penalty for not meeting your goals; you even have the prerogative to change your mind! Interested in joining the fun? Check out all the details at Katrina’s!
Happy Spring Reading!
