Totally Outrageous Springbreak Goal!

Amelia's Get 'Em Read Real Fast! week is about to begin! From Friday, March 12th - Sunday, March 21, I will try to speed-read through 4 novels and hopefully get crackin on my research papers (#1 - the impact of siege warfare in the Crusades, and #2 - education in the Third Reich)... Now, this goal sounds pretty ludicrous even to me, but I'm shooting for the stars anyway :)

I definitely want to get through Sapphique, and I'll see how far I get with the Troll Trilogy :)

How about you guys--anybody approaching Spring Break? Do you have reading goals, too, and if so, how do you set them?

Oh, and I forgot: I have to read To Kill a Mockingbird again for school :) Oh well, at least it's one of my faves! Dill cracks me up!!

Have a great Friday, everybody!!

I have spring break over that time too! It's nice to know that other people have research papers (I "get" to read the papers of Andrew Johnson) but I'm also hoping to read Graceling and Silent in the Grave as well as two Agatha Christies. Plus I found out that a used bookstore opened up near me and I'm hoping to get some good stuff from there.

Yes! I can't wait for spring break. Mine starts the week after. I think I'll tackle at least one non-fiction book. But other than that, I don't have a specific plan.
