~Fall Into Reading Challenge Begins Today~


Get psyched!! The Fall Reading Challenge starts today....do you have your list ready? If you do, head on over to Callapidder Days and leave a comment, then copy your link into Mr. Linky!

Here’s a brief recap of how to be a part of Fall Into Reading 2009:

  • Make a list of books you want to read (or finish reading) this fall. Your list can be as long or as short as you’d like. (Also, feel free to modify your list during the challenge if it’s not working for you.)
  • Write a blog post containing your list and submit it to this post using the Mr. Linky HERE.
  • Get reading! The challenge goes from today, September 22nd, through December 20th.
  • Check out other participants’ lists and add to your own to-read-someday pile!
  • Write a post about your challenge experience in December, telling us all about whether you reached your goals and how Fall Into Reading went for you. But remember: this is a low-pressure challenge that should be fun. As long as you do some reading this fall (and enjoy it!), that’s good enough for me.
Let the fun begin! Here is my tentative list for this challenge.

The Widow's Season by Laura Brodie
(completed)
Who Do You Think You Are by Alyse Myers (completed)
Reconstructing Natalie by Laura Jenson Walker (completed)
Driving With Dead People by Monica Holloway (completed)

I might add some books to this list later on...I have been reading slow lately, so I want to start out with a list that doesn't overwhelm me.

What about you? What books will you choose for the challenge?

I wonder if my list is too long now. I may have been overambitious. I haven't heard of these four books, they sound good.

Shelly said...

I think you will love Reconstructing Natalie! I have read most of Laura Jensen Walker's books; I love her writing!

Lynne said...

Hi Missy, LOVE your blog! I'm an animal lover and book fiend as well. Check out my list for the challenge...

Have not heard of the books before, but enjoy reading them. The title;Who Do You Think You Are has made me curious. :)

Wanda said...

Ohhh, pretty button for the season.
Best of luck with this challenge, Missy!

I'm trying very hard to stick to my decision not to do any more challenges - I'm such a failure with almost all of them! This one sounds like such fun, though - great list of books.

I haven't heard of any of them. Intrigued though - off to look them up on Amazon. Happy Reading!

Kristen said...

You've got some good looking reads in front of you for this one. I don't think I'll change my list given the reasons I chose the books on it but I love that this challenge lets you change should you want to.

I read and liked the last two books on your list. I like all of Laura Jenson Walker's fiction books. :)

I've heard lots of good things about Laura Jenson Walker's books, but haven't read any of them yet. One of these days... :)

Enjoy your fall reading, and thanks for being part of the challenge!

I pondering adding this to my list but I have somehow hit a wall on reading with way to many books I "have to" read in the coming weeks. **pout**

Happy Reading!
