To spring forward...

Spring is upon us! March is here and outdoor life is beginning again. And so is the Spring Reading Challenge!

The rules are simple. Just make a list of the books you plan to read during the months of March, April, and May and start reading.

My list will be:
1. The Saffron Kitchen - Yasmin Crowther (which I'm already halfway through reading)
2. St. Peter's Fair - Ellis Peters
3. Dealing With Dragons - Patricia C. Wrede
4. Cast Two Shadows - Ann Rinaldi
5. Love in a Time of Cholera - Gabriel Garcia Marquez
6. The Leper of St. Giles - Ellis Peters
7. The Red and the Black - Stendhal
8. The Last Silk Dress - Ann Rinaldi
9. The Whale Rider - Witi Ihimaera
10. The Virign in the Ice - Ellis Peters
11. Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte
12. Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard - Kiran Desai
13. Treasure Island - Robert Louis Stevenson
14. The Sanctuary Sparrow - Ellis Peters
15. Madame Bovary - Gustav Flaubert

15 books, that's 5 books a month. Slightly ambitious for me, but isn't that part of what makes something a challenge? Many, if not most, of these are books being read for other challenges, but it's kind of nice to map it out so clearly.

Great list! I love the Cadfael books, although I haven't read them in a long time.

Cast Two Shadows sounds interesting. I hope you'll give us a little review if you have time.
