Just click on the picture above to find out more about this challenge. It’s really easy and should make for a nice summer. And, it’s a very appropriate way to celebrate the centennial of Louisa May Alcott’s Orchard House as a museum. 🙂

  1. Sounds great! I wish I’d create more time to read. It’s so enjoyable and breaks you away from computers and TV. 🙂

    1. Agreed. It makes me feel better when I’m blue too. I decided to get up a half hour earlier in the morning so I could read and write for an hour before work. I also read when I work out a couple times a week. And lately at work, I have this new duty of scoring card stock paper for our brochures (I work in a real estate office supporting 20+ lovable divas :-)) – it’s mindless work using this nifty little gadget put out by Martha Stewart – and I read while I’m doing that. 🙂

  2. Thanks for joining in my reading challenge, Susan! I was hoping you would!

    Your list of books looks amazing. If I have time this summer, after I finish my own goal, I may take on one of two of the other books you’ve talked about on your blog. I’m really interested in some other material on Miss Alcott, and you have such an abundance of information on plenty of things I could read!

    I hope you have fun with this reading challenge, and good luck!

    1. Hah, hope I didn’t get overly ambitious! I’m starting to read a little faster these days though and I do have to keep up with this blog. 🙂 Looking forward to the challenge!
