Spring Into Reading 2011 List

Despite the cold, rain, and wind outside my window right now, the calendar says it is the first day of Spring.  And that means it's time to put together a list for Spring Into Reading 2011.  I have a feeling this list will be much more "in progress" than previous lists because I haven't really given it much thought over the last couple of weeks.  But here goes.

I'll start with the books from Fall Reading thing 2010 that I still haven't read:

Berried to the Hilt by Karen MacInerney
Secrets of Harmony Grove by Mindy Starns Clark
Meaning at the Movies by Grant Horner
Dog On It by Spencer Quinn
To the Manner Dead by Sebastian Suart

And here are some books I hope to get read over the next couple of months.

The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan
Formula for Murder by Diana Orgain
Mind Altering Murder by William Rabkin
The Resurrection by Mike Duran
Heads You Lose by Lisa Lutz
10th Anniversary by James Patterson
Twice as Dead by Sue Ann Jaffarian
Mr. Monk on the Couch by Lee Goldberg
The Reformed by Tod Goldberg
Killer Routine by Alan Orloff
The Albuquerque Turkey by John Vorhaus
The KenKen Killings by Parnell Hall
The Brothers of Baker Street by Michael Robertson

Well, that gives me 18 books, and it will probably be impressive if I get that much read.  So we'll leave the list here for today, but I will probably make a few additions as books I forgot creap back into my brain.

Great list, Mark! You always point me to mysteries that had not yet made it onto my radar. Thanks for being part of this year's challenge. Enjoy your spring reading and I hope the sun comes out soon!

I appreciate your challenge because it focuses my reading. Looking at my list of books from Spring I haven't read yet, I saw several that I was excited to read and am amazed I'd forgotten about.

I haven't read a one of these but see some I'm putting on my want to read list. Happy spring reading.

I love these reading challenges and seeing all of the reading lists we create. Our styles are so different. I didn't finish all of my books from the fall reading challenge. (but I did read some others instead). Good luck on your reading thing!

I love Southern CA. San Diego is my favorite place to be! (too bad I don't live there)

I'm actually a couple hours north of San Diego.

It's rare I finish my list. Usually it's not because I add other books but because I bite off more than I can read. Once I did get them all read, but I only listed like 10 books, less than I knew I would read. But it felt good to finish.
