No Spring Reading Thing…

Hi everyone. I’m sure many of you figured this was the case, but there will be no Spring Reading Thing this year. As you can tell from this blog’s dormant state, I can’t even seem to put together a blog post these days, much less run a reading challenge. It’s a combination of busyness, priorities, distractions, and just life.

I’m not shutting down Callapidder Days at this point, though, and I do hope to return to blogging eventually.

If, however any of YOU are hosting a spring reading challenge, please feel free to post a link in the comments so others can check it out. Thanks!


Update: Sandra Stiles is planning to host a Spring Reading Thing this year, complete with button, prizes, and the familiar low-stress approach you’ve seen here. So if you’re looking for a challenge to join, hop over to Sandra’s blog for more details: Spring Reading Thing 2013


  1. So sorry to hear! Hope life is just busy and fantastic and that you can get back to blogging at some point!

  2. Understand the busy life. Hope to find you on here in the near future. It has been a pleasure following your blog.

  3. I understand, but it seems weird with spring approaching and no Spring Reading Thing to be thinking about. I’d host, but I don’t have the time right now myself. But if someone does decide to take up the mantel, by all means let me know.

  4. I was just thinking about SRT the other day and assuming it probably wasn’t going to happen this year since I hadn’t seen anything about it. Though I’ll miss it, I understand, and it’s just as well because I have no idea what I’d put on my list this time! I have books stacked up to read but am just seeing what I want to delve into as I end each one.

  6. aww, so sorry to hear that… but TOTALLY understand! My blog as been dormant for a season (or more) recently too. I’ll keep checking in here and of course I’ll be still reading!! See you around the web! :-)

    I have decided I can’t live without this challenge so I am hosting it on my blog. Please head over to: for detals

  8. I completely understand! I ended up shutting down one blog and my posts on My Book Retreat are few and far between. I’m also struggling to find time in my busy life to read! I thought signing up for this might help me get back into reading, so I’m glad Sandra is hosting! Yay!
