Where Did The Time Go?

I realize that the lack of posts on this blog make it appear as if I haven't been reading. The truth is, I have been reading -- a lot of Scripture, as well as some cookbooks. (Apparently, reading Scripture and Bible study books makes a person crave things like lemon bars.)

Anyway, when I finally looked at the calendar I realized that Spring has sprung. Time again for another Spring Reading Thing challenge, hosted by Katrina. Without further ado, here are the books I hope to finish reading by June 20.

1) Wuthering Heights, Emily Bronte. I've wanted to read this book since I read (and fell in love with) Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre. I just hadn't gotten around to picking up a copy from the library until now.

2) The Tale of Despereaux, Kate Dicamillo. I read this book several years ago, but want to read it again. No, I haven't seen the movie -- yet. Finished reading on 6/6/09. Review to come. And yes, I've also seen the movie now.

3) Interior Castle, St. Teresa of Avila. (In progress.)

4) Finish reading Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin. (In progress.)

5) No Greater Love, Mother Teresa. Finished reading on 3/27/09.

I may pick up more books if time allows. Interior Castle, I hear, isn't exactly something a person can -- or should -- breeze through. I plan to take my time with that one.

So, what's on your "to read" list?

I just finished Three Cups of Tea. I really liked it, especially the last 3 chapters, post 9/11. I think he makes a lot of sense. Enjoy it!

Those all sound interesting to me, especially Mother Teresa's book.

My book list is up HERE~ stop on by if you'd like to take a peek.

I'm working through The Story this year - and following the online bible studies.

I've just started Ted Kimmel's books, from the conference. The first one is about creating an atmosphere of grace.

I haven't read any Charlotte Bronte's books yet, but would like to. I grew up on Charlotte St. How's that for a connection! ;-)

I read Wuthering Heights because I loved Jane Eyre and it took 2 reads to realize I really liked the book. Happy reading.

I have Three Cups of Tea but haven't started it yet. I'll be curious to hear what you think. I'm also a fellow fan of Gladys Hunt, author of Honey for the Heart books. It's so much fun to read about books other people have enjoyed to get ideas about what to read next :) Thanks for sharing your list.
