I’m still hoping to have Redemption by Leon Uris finished before the end of the month (yes, I know that’s only two days away) – but if I don’t, finishing that will be tops on my spring list. I would have it finished by now, but I received two books in the mail that I need to read and review, and….well, you know how it goes.
Here are my in-progress books that I resolve to have finished by the end of May:
~The Collected Works of Emily Dickinson
~Take Joy: The Writers Guide To Loving The Craft by Jane Yolen
~Super Mom Saves the World by Melanie Lynne Hauser
~Quaker Summer by Lisa Samson
~My Own Two Feet: A Memoir by Beverly Cleary
~Eragon by Christopher Paolini (reading aloud to the kids)
Here are the other books off my List and off my shelves that I will read:
~To America: Personal Reflections of an Historian by Stephen Ambrose
~The Collected Poems of Wendell Berry, 1957-1982
~Writers on Writing, Volume II: More Collected Essays from The New York Times
~An Irish Country Doctor by Patrick Taylor
~A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
I’m sure I’ll also listen to a few audiobooks during the next three months, but the titles depend on what the library has available. I’ll hopefully finish a few more off of my shelves, too, but I want to leave room for impulse items from the library and loans from friends.
