Fall into Reading 2010


When I started My Book Retreat almost a year ago, I did so mostly to keep track of my reading. This was prompted by a challenge hosted by Katrina at Callapidder Days. Well, the year has passed and once again I'm joining in Katrina's Fall into Reading challenge.

I love the simplicity of this challenge. All I have to do it put together a list of books I want to read during the Fall season (Sept 22 - Dec 20), and then read them! So, here is the list of books I am committing to finishing within the next three months:
  1. Saving Max by Antoinette van Heugten
  2. Bobo’s Daughter by Bonnie Barnett
  3. Little Bee by Chris Cleave
  4. Back to the Homeplace by William Smith
  5. The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom
  6. When No One is Watching by Joe Hayes
  7. Everything Changes by Jonathan Tropper
  8. Tales from a Spanish Village by Dr. Richard Barrett
  9. The Little Giant of Aberdeen County by Tiffany Baker
  10. The Christmas Gift by R. William Bennett
  11. A Note from an Old Acquaintance by Bill Walker
    I'm already reading Saving Max, but I haven't made it very far. I do have one other goal for this challenge: to read a total of 20 books by December 20th. I only have 11 on my list, but I have plenty more to be read. There are a few books that I had on my Read Your Own Books (RYOB) challenge that aren't on this list, so I hope to get to those. I've also bought or won several other books this year that I'd love to sit down and read. And I'm sure I'll be offered more for review that I just can't decline. There are far too many good books out there that must be read!

    What are you planning to read this Fall? Head over to Callapidder Days to join the Fall into Reading Challenge!

    6. I haven't read any of these! I was looking at Little Bee in the bookstore not long ago, though -- looks like a good one.

      Thanks for being part of FIR '10!

    7. Great list. I started my blog to keep track of what I was reading and to remember what I thought of the books I read. It sort of exploded after awhile. But, I love it. I've found so many new books to read and made so many new friends.
