Summer Reading Challenge 2009

[Moving this up to the front. Be sure to check out the current readers below and add you name and link to your list in the comments!]

It's been awhile, a couple of years to be exact, since I hosted seasonal reading challenges. I believe I can handle this now, even though I still have lots to do. And, goodness knows, I need the push to renew my pursuit of intentional reading.

The last reading challenge I hosted had 24 linked participants! It would be thrilling to get reacquainted again. So, if you want to link your list, please add it in the comments.

I have several books I want to read this summer and some I need to pre/re-read for school next year.

Brunelleschi's Dome (King) in preparation for our exciting trip.
David Livingston (Benge)
Meriwether Lewis (Benge)
John Adams (Benge)
The List (Baker)
To the Last Man
(Shaara)
King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table (Green)
The Captain's Dog (Smith)
Cruel and Unusual
(Cornwell) (I'm slowly making my way through Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta mysteries)

This list doesn't include my morning books: The Literary Study Bible, The Christian Almanac, and (currently) The Journey (Guinness). I have always had a teacher book going on too, but I've not decided which one that will be yet.

Let's help each other in our pursuit of the good life by intentional reading!

Read!

Huffing and puffing....

I finally got a list together.

Whew!

I'm reinvigorated now that I have a plan.
