Spring Reading Thing Wrap Up

Katrina at Callapider Days had a few questions to wrap up her Spring Reading Thing Challenge.
  • What was the best book you read this spring? I read a lot of good books, not all from the challenge. Lolita, The Time Traveler's Wife, Fall On Your Knees.
  • What book could you have done without? An audiobook: The Elements of Style by Wendy Wasserstein.
  • Did you try out a new author this spring? If so, which one, and will you be reading that author again? The second day of spring, I finished Saving Fish from Drowning, I hadn't read anything by her before. Although I wasn't impressed with this book, I will read her again.
  • If there were books you didn't finish, tell us why. Did you run out of time? Realize those books weren't worth it? Nope.
  • Did you come across a book or two on other participants' lists that you're planning to add to your own to-be-read pile? Which ones? I can't think of anything off the top of my head but I will be checking out the reviews on Callapider Days.
  • What did you learn -- about anything -- through this challenge? Maybe you learned something about yourself or your reading style, maybe you learned not to pick so many nonfiction books for a challenge, maybe you learned something from a book you read. Whatever it is, share! I tried some new things. A non-fiction read, The Seven Daughters of Eve, and an audiobook for the first time. I guess I learned to expand my horizons!
  • What was the best part of the Spring Reading Thing? Seeing what others are reading and challenging myself.
  • Would you be interested in participating in another reading challenge this fall? Sure!


  1. I love the idea of asking questions after a challenge! Do you know if this is a common way to wrap up a challenge? I hope so!

  2. I don't know. But I think it's a great idea.

  3. I enjoyed reading your wrap up! I agree with Dewey, the questions are a good idea. I'm glad Katrina thought to do that.

    Definitely do try something else by Amy Tan. I haven't read the book you mention yet, but I have read some of her other work. I enjoy her writing very much.

  4. I must have missed your review of "7 daughters of eve" the first time around (just went back to look at it). Just looked at it on amazon as well, that does sound like a really interesting book!

  5. I am so impressed you finished everything. I read a lot, but have trouble staying on track. I want to read the Time Traveler's Wife.
