For us in the Northern hemisphere, its SUPPOSED to be the first day of spring (I have snow right now so...) and what better way to celebrate than springing into your next book, a new author or series?
For those in the Southern hemisphere, it's the first day of fall, with all the pretty leaves changing colors! A great way to celebrate is to fall back on an old favorite book, author or series!

This will run from today, the 20th of March to the 27th of March!
Have fun and let me know if you want any SNOW!

We usually read whatever books we feel like. Some of our members plan their reads, others just go with the flow.
My goal is to finish some of the books I have been reading for a while, since I generally have a few books on the go at once. Of course, that doesn't stop me from starting new books.

Great, Ashy!


message 18: by Michelle (new)

Michelle | 19 comments I'm in. Let's hope there's not too much snow. Snow days means more cooking and baking not so much reading.


message 19: by Susy (new)

Susy (susysstories) | 422 comments I’m in! Hoping to at least finish Blindness, having a hard time getting into it (I’m at page 16, have been reading it for 3 days!)

Rosemarie | 3807 comments Mod
I had the same situation with Blindness. The first time I tried reading it, I gave up on it. I tried again about a year later and finished the book this time. It is not an easy read but ultimately a rewarding read, even though it is grim at times.


message 21: by Susy (new)

Susy (susysstories) | 422 comments Thx for the encouragement Rosemarie, will try to push through!


message 22: by megan (new)

megan | 885 comments Been binge reading all evening. I was sick over the weekend and suddenly have the energy I gained from so much sleep. Likely just to start the cycle over. Oh well. I’ll take the free reading time though.

Becky | 25 comments Sounds great.... but will pass on the snow thanks.

I love seeing everyine reactions to my snow haha!
I just finished Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman. The stories were good but awkwardly written at times.


message 25: by Francesca (new)

Francesca (francescapigeon) | 1 comments Had snow a fee days ago, but none currently on the ground where I live. Literally just finished Stardust (Neil Gaiman) and I’m now thinking of giving Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One a go ahead of the film. Never read his books before :)

Katherine | 12 comments I'm in and I just started reading Winter not long ago, so that's going to take a while to read. :)

My first book is one that I had been reading for a while.

1. The Soul of Man Under Socialism, and Selected Critical Prose by Oscar Wilde

This is a book I read in 3 days because the writing and story drew me in.

2. The Grass Harp by Truman Capote

Book 3: The Empty House and Other Ghost Stories by Algernon Blackwood

These are weird and well-written ghost stories.

After seeing the movie, I read The Stone Raft and Death With Interruptions. I had mixed feelings about both books, so I wasn't sure if I wanted to bother with Blindness.

Cherry Coley | 12 comments Almost done with The Introvert Advantage How to Thrive in an Extrovert World by Marti Olsen Laney What an insightful book! I'm also reading The Alchemyst (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, #1) by Michael Scott . Ha! Gotta keep the fiction and non-fiction going.

I just finished a book I have been reading for a few weeks - The Collected Poems of W.B. Yeats.

And another book that I started at the beginning of the month - Manchild in the Promised Land by Claude Brown


message 40: by Trisha (new)

Trisha | 792 comments I read The Woman in White - Wilkie Collins because it was on my TBR list for ages.

Rosemarie | 3807 comments Mod
It is always satisfying to finish a book from the TBR list, especially a chunkster.

I just finished a short little book called La casa de papel by Carlos María Domínguez. It is a fable about a character who is completely obsessed with books.


message 43: by Trisha (new)

Trisha | 792 comments I read Parliament of Rooks: Haunting Brontë Country - Karen Perkins. Not for me - I found it a weird mixture of modern chick lit, historical novel, & ghosts. I enjoyed the historical part, which appeared realistic & carefully researched.
