Spring Reading Thing close-out


Spring is over – Summer is here!

I mostly finished my reading list! And read several other books along the way, due to library schedules or getting distracted. For example, I read the Zookeeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman and really enjoyed it! I also read a biography of George Washington that wasn’t as enjoyable, but was a good start on what is turning into a major reading project around the Founding Fathers.

The beauty of a challenge is that it keeps me on task, so I don’t get too far off track with additional reads without reading at least some of my original objective.

My original list with links to book reviews or summaries.

  1. Consequences of Sin by Clare Langley-Hawthorne
  2. Sworn to Silence by Linda Castillo (an advance readers’ edition, it’s coming out June 2009)
  3. Get Outta My Face! by Rick Horne

    Good job! One of these days I’m going to read some John Piper too.

    I’m wondering which bio of Washington you read. I read Flexner’s… I’m glad I did, and it was very instructive. But I can’t say I enjoyed reading it too terribly much.
