Spring Reading Challenge

Janie at Seasonal Soundings is hosting the Spring Reading Challenge. It IS fun to set a reading goal and see how much is accomplished at the end of the season. I feel like a beginner next to the incredible lists I see from my blogging sisters!

Here I post my own humble list, kept necessarily small because I read aloud 2+ hours a day to my children, but also because I like to leave white space on my list for books I find by serendipity. Do you, too, find that wonderful books seem to fall into your hands by divine intention?

Here is my list:

  • Heaven by Randy Alcorn
  • Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott
  • The One Year Book of Poetry
  • The Chosen by Chaim Potok
  • The Soloist by Mark Salzman

And these are books still in progress that are left over from the winter:

  • Wandering Through Winter by Edwin Way Teale
  • A Naturalist Buys an Old Farm by Edwin Way Teale
  • The Intellectual Life by A.G.Sertillanges, O.P.

The Soloist is a great book (everything by Mark Salzman is great!)

Three books between us during the same challenge!

How about posting some thoughts on The Intellectual Life when you finish with it? I loved that book. It's one that is timeless.
