Fall Into Reading

Today is the kick-off for The Fall Into Reading Challenge hosted by Katrina over at Callapidder Days. I have always wanted to do this challenge but didn't have a blog. So now I get to participate too! I'm very excited. The challenge begins today September 22 and goes through December 20. It's a fun challenge without a lot of rules. Post a list and read away! I'm starting with 10 books and if I get them read I'll add more to the list. I may have some library books come in that I reserved too.

1. The Calligrapher's Daughter by Eugenia Kim
2. Best Friends Forever by Jennifer Weiner
3. Sworn To Silence by Linda Castillo
4. Sarah's Promise by Leisha Kelly
5. Confections Of A Closet Baker by Gesine Bullock-Prado
6. The Postmistress by Sarah Blake
7. Beautiful Mess by Diamond Rio
8. Blue Like Playdough by Tricia Goyer
9. The Secret Garden by Francis Hodgson Burnett
10. The Moon Looked Down by Dorothy Garlock
11. The Day The Falls Stood Still by Cathy Marie Buchanan
12. No Time To Wave Goodbye by Jacquelyn Mitchard

Now to get my special reading throw out, fix my favorite mug of tea and get reading! I'm thinking a bag of candy corn would be good to munch on too! First I need to see what everyone else is reading!


  1. Have fun reading the books! I looked up The Moon Looked Down, and it sounds very good.

  2. I have The Moon Looked Down on my bookshelf patiently waiting to be read. Would love to read Best Friends Forever, it's on my Wishlist.

    Good luck with this reading challenge.

  3. Looks like a great list. Happy reading!

  4. Oh, candy corn! That's a great thought - I'll have to get a bag for when I read. I absolutely loved reading "The Secret Garden" with my daughters. Hope you enjoy!

  5. You have a nice mix of books. Enjoy your candy corn and books. What flavor candy corn do you enjoy? I tried the apple one year and it wasn't too bad.

  6. I have had the apple flavor and it is good. There is a chocolate flavor too that isn't too bad either. Thanks all for stopping by.

  7. Looks good, Beth! I have Sworn to Silence on my shelf, and have been thinking about picking up Best Friends Forever, too.

    Thanks for being part of Fall Into Reading '09!

  8. That looks like a great list! I was thinking about putting The Moon Looked Down on my list, but I didn't for some reason. Good luck on the challenge.

  9. You have some great books on your list. I have never read The Secret Garden (hanging my head in shame) but I hope to someday.

    I skipped this challenge this year as I joined the Clear off Your Shelves challenge and also the RIP challenge. That's about all I can handle!

  10. Enjoy the `Secret Garden`. It's a good read.
    I see you are a book reviewer for Thomas Nelson.

  11. I added The Calligrapher's Daughter to my to-read list. The Secret Garden was a favorite of mine as a young teen; I really ought to read it again. Have a fun with the challenge!
