  4. Hi Susan-
    "Once in a Blue Moon" told me to check out your "challenge". I'm totally in...currently reading Chocolat by Joanne Harris, but I'll make up a list and will link to your post. You're so brilliant with your ideas!

  5. I am new to blogger! Your blog title caught my eye "A Southern Daydreamer Reads"....I am going to explore your blog and read some reviews. I have also joined the Spring Reading should be fun! Have a great day!

  6. I plan to participate but won't add a link since my blog is private!

  7. I hope the Mr. Linky is still up tomorrow! The weather has kept the computer down most of today -- and I don't have time right now. I want to put on the list for our book club.


  8. Susan, I'm going to give this some thought before I do a link to it. Great idea! laurie

  9. I'll start choosing books today then post and link up!

  10. I'm in! I have 8 books to read for my exit exam on Wednesday for my masters and then after that I can read for fun! (I miss reading for fun, this master's has taken two years!) I'll post my list by the end of the week!

  11. I'm in for this challenge but I have too go digging for those books I've been meaning to read so I'll post in the next couple of day. Thanks for the encouragement.

  12. Hi
    Wow this caught me off guard in a really nice way !
    So I will have to go through some of my bankers boxes of books I'm planning on reading than I will make a list. This is an awesome way to challenge others to a spring read a thon .Thanks for the challenge.

  13. Do you know, since you proposed this, I've read one novel, and parts of two other books. Yeah!

  14. This is a great idea. I will post as soon as I get out of the tulips. :-)

  15. Whew! I finally finished The Master ... now I have to give serious thought as to what I pick up next. The Master is a novelized (if that is a word) biography of Henry James the author and playwright. Very interesting read! I recommend.
