Spring Reading Challenge

Below is a list of the books I plan to read this Spring for the Spring Reading Challenge.

I have listed everything except the titles of gardening books I plan to read. My yard is calling for me to plant more flowers and my deck looks absolutely forlorn so I will be doing more research on gardening this year than ever before. Trust me...I'll eventually tell you the titles! :)


As usual, I'll be reading various magazines...

Always
Tea Time every two months...

Sometimes Southern Lady, Paula Deen, Romantic Living, Midwest Living and when I am blessed enough to find an old copy...Victoria!


I just subscribed to Books & Culture; A Christian Review, too.

I know what you mean about the yard calling for some tender loving care but the weather here is just not cooperating so I suppose it will have to wait.
I may have to looking into finding your devotional material. One can never have enough of those. Your other "to-do" reads sound interesting as well.
I thoroughly enjoy your site and all it's interesting information.
Thank you for sharing it with us.

I've been thinking about this as well...What to read in Spring? I'll have to give it some thought. May I borrow your darling SRC button? I'll make it link back here...
Do stop by for tea, if you can. I've added several new recipes just this weekend.
