I hate saying TBR when I make these kinds of posts.  I said in another post that the term “TBR” seems too structured.  I would rather use the term “reading plans” because the books on this list may or may not be all the books that I will be reading this spring.  As you can see this is a very incomplete list, and it will be updated accordingly.  This list is not in the order that I will be reading these books.

I have a love/hate relationship with spring. I love that the weather starts getting warmer, and that it stays lighter later. However, there is one thing that I hate about spring, and that’s all the pollen. Due to the mild winter, I feel like pollen counts were high a lot earlier this year. I’m pretty sure I have another post about allergies and what I do for them, but if not I’ll draft one up and post it sometime next month.  Next month is asthma and allergy awareness month.


Baseball was always my favorite sport, and it still is. A lot of people think baseball is boring to watch, but not me. I don’t know how, but I always find something exciting about watching a game, I guess it’s because of the probability involved, there’s always a bunch of different probable outcomes. Ironically, I hate math, but baseball math is kind of fun. I find baseball statistics fascinating. A lot of times, I tell people that my spring starts in February. February is when players report to spring training to begin baseball activities, and even spring training games start in February. In Massachusetts, a typical New England winter is cold and dreary, so baseball beginning is a sign that spring is coming, and after the long winters us New Englanders deal with, baseball is an extremely welcome sight.
