Spring Reading Thing 2012

Looking for a fun, low-stress reading challenge? Katrina at Callapidder Days is hosting Spring Reading Thing. Make your list, link your link, read your books, wrap it up! The challenge runs from March 20th to June 20th!

Here’s my list for Spring Thing 2012:

I’ve been reading at least one short work a week which means that by the end of April I should finish People of the Book: A Decade of Jewish Science Fiction (5 stories left). Next up isThe Barnum Museum by Steven Millhauser. I should be able to read most of it (10 stories) during Spring Reading Thing. I’m also reading the available Nebula award nominees. The winners will be announced May 19th. I might be able to finish the short stories and novelettes by then. (4 short stories, 2 novelettes. Haven’t started on the novellas.)

Finish: Moby Duck: The True Story of 28,800 Bath Toys Lost at Sea… by Donovan Hohn (Might be rough since I have to return it to the library on April 2nd and Hohn is *verbose*.)

Read a couple of recent Smashwords acquisitions:

And maybe I’ll get to:

  • Chocolate & Vicodin by Jennette Fulda
  • The Italian Secretary by Caleb Carr

Plus, keep up with  my weekly poetry and weekly chapters of George R. R. Martin’s A Clash of Kings.

    What a list! I bought People of the Book a few weeks ago. I read great things about Moby Duck so I hope you enjoy it. Happy reading!
