  1. I’m cheering you on! I did great on my monthly plan in February, not so hot in March, but there is still a week and a half left to redeem myself. : ) The Core is excellent – you will enjoy that, I predict. And, I just recently had to BUY a copy of Tom Sawyer. I know I had/have a copy from my childhood, but can’t find it anywhere. I’m looking forward to rereading that one!

  2. I’ve seen a number of people mention Lit! over the last few months and I’ve seen it pop up on what SRT lists I’ve seen already. My first response is that I’d rather read than read about reading, but this sounds really interesting.

    I’m looking forward to Wodehouse, too. I’ve only read one of his books so far but really enjoyed it.

    I don’t really prioritize reading — I just usually go with whatever I feel like. But that’s one thing I like about SRT — it helps me be more purposeful.

  3. Quite an ambitious list! I go through phases where I read everything in sight and then slow down for a while. This time of year seems to be a big reading time for me, so I think I will get through my whole list.

    Happy Reading. 🙂

  4. I don’t recognize anything on your list, but that’s not surprising as my reading tends to focus on mysteries, crafts and a bit of this and that. I set a goal of 12 books, but my reading is always guided by my mood, so I may not complete the 12 I have pre-selected. Good luck with this year’s SRT challenge.

  5. What a stack! I’ve read positive things about Dead End in Norvelt and Inside Out and Back Again. Barbara H. is right that SRT gives readers a chance to add more purpose to their reading. To prioritize my reading, I usually try to limit the amount of time I spend online and keep a book in my purse. Happy reading!

  6. Your Bible reading schedule is slightly more ambitious than mine, but I do hope to finish Jeremiah and Lamentations by June 20th.

    I highly recommend the Bess Crawford series, although I thought the third one – A Bitter Truth – not up to the previous books. If you like Bess, also try Maisie Dobbs.

  7. You’ve got a great list! I do hope you get to Bo Caldwell’s City of Tranquil Light! It was one of my favorite books I read last year. I’m also curious to see what you think of Dead End in Norvelt.

  8. Oh yes, you must read City of Tranquil Light! It is a book you won’t be able to put down! I loved it and now that you’ve reminded me will probably pick it up again! Enjoy your list!

  9. A few months ago I decided I needed to be more disciplined like you’re suggesting to read my Bible before I read anything else. For the most part, I have, and I feel much better about it. Hope it goes well for you too.

    I am reading Lit! right now and enjoying it. I really liked Enemies of the Heart.

    Enjoy your reading!

  10. I sometimes assign priorities to my “to be read” list based on seasonality– e.g., garden/plants books in the spring, books that are set near water (like the beach) in the summer, mothering books around Mother’s Day, etc. I do kind of stretch the definitions sometimes, but at least it gives me a target to aim for with some of the TBRs.

    Have you not ever read Tom Sawyer? Or is this a reread?
