Well, not much reading for me in March. I was too busy with LIFE! I'm not sure how April will be as I'll be doing some spring cleaning and also trying to gear up for our school ending for the year. We've made lots of plans for our homeschool group, so that will take some of my time away from reading.

I did read:

~~ Song of Erin, by BJ Hoff

GREAT story! I'll be looking for more of her books

~~ House Rules, by Jodi Picoult

This one was about a young teen with Asperger's Syndrome who is accused of murder. Very interesting read; I learned a lot about the syndrome. The author did a great amount of research on the subject.

Currently reading:

~~Just Jane, by Nancy Moser

An easy read about author Jane Austen. Since I have not ready any of Austen's works, I don't know how accurate the portrayal is.

Planning to read:

~~The Winds of Promise, and To Gather the Wind, by Bodie and Brock Thoene. It's set in the 1800's during the California gold rush. Should be interesting!

~~Love Finds You in Liberty Indiana, by Melanie Dobson. Haven't read any of her books yet, but should be an easy ready. This one is about the Underground Railroad.


How about you? Any plans for this month? Do you find that you are slowing down with your reading at this time of year, or are you reading more? I'd love to hear from you!

This month I am giving away the Just Jane book, by Nancy Moser (I'm almost finished it!).
Leave a comment and I'll enter your name in for the drawing on April 23rd.

ooooh I REALLY want to read House Rules by Jodi Picoult!! I have a child who is profoundly Autistic. Altho the disorders are very different they are in the same DSM category and both are considered to be pervasive developmental disorders. Picoults writing really impresses me and I am sure i will love this book :) Just gotta find it.....LOL

I recently read the Atonement Child by Francine Rivers. A very moving book. Have not read any of the Love Finds You books.

Last 2 weeks I was ill so I read a lot. Hope to keep it up!!
Reading the 3 books from Stieg Larson at the moment.

April is busy for us, too, so I probably won't get any reading done either. I read Song of Erin and enjoyed it. I've heard of Just Jane, but I haven't read it yet.

On my to-do list today is the bookstore. I've been reading alot of "women" books LOL - romance, self help, finance. A little boring,but reading is all I need to take my mind of the busyness of the everyday!! Nice of you to share Carla!! You Rock!

What a great idea--to give away a book you've read on your blog! I just finished Everyone is Beautiful by Katherine Center--quick fluffy read, perfect for these spring days.

Tanya said...

I haven't had much reading time either. But I just picked up "The Five People You Meet in Heaven", it's wonderful!!

I read daily, but I do find I read more in the winter... to much going on in the spring! I just finished "House Rules" and loved it! Jodi Picoult has to be one of my favs!!! Not sure what to read next, I do have a selection to choose from, but... not sure what I will pick for tonight!

I have a copy of House Rules on the way to my house. Can't wait to read it.
