Fall into Reading 2009

 Fall into reading 2009

Over at the Callapidder Days she is running a Fall into Reading Challenge. I don’t normally join in on these things…but I really have enjoyed reading lately. Plus I have been reading some books for reviews. So I figured why not?? Its neat to challenge yourself once and awhile to see what you can accomplish. Like I usually can read 5-9 books in two weeks if I want too. The question is if I challenge myself can I do the same?? Well, I guess we are about to find out!

This runs from September 22 to December 20th… So I have decided to come up with a list of 20 books that I want to read in that time. Do you think I will get them all read???

Ok, now for the list of books…

  1. Last Song by Nicholas Sparks
  2. The Magician’s Elephant by Kate DiCamillo
  3. What Matters most by Melody Carlson
  4. Limelight by Melody Carlson
  5. The Boneman’s Daughter by Ted Dekker
  6. Thirsty by Tracey Bateman
  7. Firefly Lane by Kristen Hannah
  8. Between Sister by Kristen Hannah
  9. Prince Caspian by CS Lewis
  10. Blood Sisters by Melody Carlson
  11. The Scrapbook by Peggy Baker
  12. Scrap Everything by Leslie Gould
  13. Peeing in Peace by Beth Feldman
  14. Because I said so by Dawn Meehan
  15. Life’s a Beach by Claire Cook
  16. Holly’s Inbox by Holly Denham
  17. Harvesting the Heart by Jodi Picoult
  18. Barefoot by Elin Hilderbrand
  19. White Picket Fences by Susan Meissner
  20. True Blue by David Baldacci

Now aside from my 20 books I want to read… I’m also going to work on a couple of series with my kids. With my son I’m going to read “39 Clues Series” with him… and with my daughters we are going to work on the “Tinkerbelle Series” of books.  That is what I’ll be doing for Fall Into Reading 2009! How about you??

We only share Meissner's book. The one about Peeing has my attention only because I have 2 young boys. :) The scrap books sound great also!

Blessings with your challenge.

I wish I had time to read that much again. I used to before kids :) Right now I read at naptime everyday and average about 1 book every week and a half to 2 weeks. I love reading so much!

Great list. I also have Last Song on my reading list, it will be the first Nicholas Sparks book I've read!

Happy Reading ~ Jovi

Looks like a great list! I'll be reading Boneman's Daughters this fall, too. And my son has really enjoyed the 39 Clues series -- he wishes the books would come out faster!

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