Fall Into Reading

The calendar says it is Fall here but Mother Nature seems a tad bit confused. It is much more like a summer day here today but that will be changing in less than 24 hours. So to kick Fall off I am going to participate in The Fall Into Reading 2010 challenge hosted by Katrina over at Callapidder Days. Katrina is kind enough to host a reading challenge not only in the Fall but also the Spring. Here is the brief recap as to how the challenge works by Katrina:

Here’s a brief recap of how to be a part of Fall Into Reading 2010:

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 below.(over at Callapidder Days)

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.

Go on over and sign up. It is quite easy and it's fun too!

My list is below and will more than likely change. I pulled these off the top of my head but I know I have some commitments that will have to be added also. And then there will be the books I see on other people's list that will have to be added! I'm hopeless when it comes to books!

1.Somewhere Inside: One Sister's Captivity in North Korea and the Other's Fight to Bring Her Home by Laura Ling and Lisa Ling
2.The World is Bigger Now by Euna Lee with Lisa Dickey
3.Room by Emma Donoghue
4.Dewey's Nine Lives by Vicki Myron with Bret Witter
5.Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick
6.Saturday Morning by Lauraine Snelling
7.Still The One by Robin Wells
8.Angel Song by Sheila Walsh and Kathryn Cushman
9.The Cailiffs of Baghdada, Georgia by Mary Helen Stefaniak
10.How to Be an American Housewife by Margaret Dilloway

I have some more books that I really want to dive into too so we shall see if the list gets longer. Go on over to Katrina's lovely blog and sign up. It's a nice, relaxed challenge and it is so much fun! It's a great way to make a dent in that TBR stack!


  1. I see two that I hope to get to this Fall as well. It has been a couple of great fall days here as well.

  2. Fall has definitely arrived here in Montreal. This challenge sounds like a good one to get cracking on that TBR list. I might consider it.

  3. I just finished Room last night and let me tell you, it is as phenomenal as everyone says it is. Good luck with this challenge!

  4. Great list. You've got several on there that I want to read! Enjoy!!

  5. Room is a must-read! Once you get into the flow of Jack's dialect, you'll absolutely be immersed in his world. Good luck with the challenge! I may just join you in it! :)
