Katrina at Callapidder Days is hosting the Spring Reading Thing 2011 self-designed, self-paced reading challenge! The guidelines are simple:

  • Each participant fashions the list of books he/she plans to read (or finish reading) this spring. The number and type of books on the list is completely up to the individual participant. Also, the list can be modified during the challenge, as necessary.
  • Each participant is asked to publish a post setting forth his/her list.
  • The challenge began on March 20, 2011, and ends on June 20, 2011, the last full day of spring.
  • Each participant is asked to sign up at Callapidder Days so that bloggers can visit each other’s sites, read each other’s reviews, and, hopefully, get acquainted with some new sites and bloggers. So far, more than one hundred bloggers are participating. Of course, this is also likely to lead to book purchases and the accumulation of more books waiting to be read. I believe that is known as an avocational hazard, so proceed at your own risk.
  • East participant is asked to publish a wrap-up post about his/her experiences during/with the challenge after it concludes in June.
