I Wanna Play Too!

Katrina over at Callapidder Days has announced the spring challenge from March 21 to June 21, with the snappy and highly appropriate name of Spring Reading Thing 2007! But in my own little world, I like to think of it as "Tackle the Mountain 2007." Working for a publisher has ensured my neverending supply of books that threaten to topple my bookshelves.

So here's my target list which is bound to grow, since I'm going to another booksale on April 14.
(in no particular order)

1. The Birth House by Ami McKay
2. The Keep by Jennifer Egan
3. The Good Guy by Dean Koontz
4. The World Below by Sue Miller
5. The Wreckage by Michael Crummey
6. The End of the Alphabet by CS Richardson

Is anyone else creeped out by the fact that every book on my list starts with "The?"


On with the reading!

A new Dean Koontz??? I think my list just got longer!! It sounds like a good one. Brother Odd was on my list originally, but I read it a few days ago, so didn't count it. Actually, I had 4 books originally on my list that I read before the start of the challenge.... I hope my list is long enough to keep me busy! I at least know the ones I'm reading with the kids will. take the whole time, maybe a little more.

I'm with Karen -- a new Dean Koontz?! Thanks for letting me know about that one! I think I'll have to pick that one up once I finish up the fiction books I've already listed. I got a kick out "Tackle the Mountain" -- I know just how that feels!

Enjoy your books!

Enjoyed checking out your reading list! You know, I have not read one Dean Koontz book. My daughter keeps telling me I must read one!

Kathleen aka Coffee Mom said...

I've only read one Dean Koontz and it was so long ago I don't remember it at all. I'll have to check out the new one.

Deena said...

Hmmm..I'll be watching for your reviews on these...and Dean Koontz has sparked a lot of interest...may have to check him out!

Susanne said...

I've never read a Dean Koontz either. I might just have to bite the bullet and give it a try! :v)

Happy reading!

I just finished The Birth House last week. Loved it. I reviewed it on my blog.

Rae said...

I haven't heard of most of these so I can't wait to see some of your reviews. Good luck & have fun reading! =)

Jennifer said...

Yeah--books are dangerous--all that toppling over and bookcase bulging.

I love the name of your blog--very clever.

It's so great to see so many of you enthusiastic about a new Koontz book! Yeah, this one's coming out in May, so I'll get a jump on it as soon as I can.

The problem with tackling the mountain of books is that once I've read them, they go back on the bookshelf! Hmm...maybe I should do a little bookcrossing. Better yet, a yard sale so I can make some money to buy more books. ;)

Thanks for stopping by everybody!

HMMM, I may have to add the Dean Koontz to my list :) Happy Spring and Happy Reading! Thanks for visiting.

Tackle the mountain...ain't that the truth?!!
Good luck! And have a wonderful day!

i'm not familiar with any of the books on your list, so i'll have to come back to find out what you thought of them!

happy reading!

Amy said...

Thanks for visiting my blog. I have "The Birth House" on my TBR list and I love Dean Koontz so I will have to check out that title.

Happy Reading!

I've never read Dean Koontz. Maybe I might have to shock my husband and try it. LOL Looks like some great reads here! Enjoy!
