Fall Into Reading Challenge Launch


Fall into Reading
September 23-December 22
Hosted by Katrina at callapidder days


Katrina is once again hosting her low-pressure challenge. The only real requirement is to make a list. Just figure out what books you'd like to read this fall and sign up. That's it.

Check out the information post for more details--hope you'll join us! And go HERE for the Launch Post link up.

I saw the first post about this year's challenge over at Book Dragon's Lair. And I really like her plan for the challenge. Setting up two lists. One list for the rest of the year and a shorter list just for the Fall Into Reading Challenge. I will definitely read the shorter list and I hope to complete the longer list. If I do, that will knock out eleven more challenges for the year!

Wow great list! I really adored A Great & Terrible Beauty and all the other books in that series - good luck with your challenge(s)!

Kristin said...

Great list...I have a few of your books on my tbr list. I really need to pick up a Christy English book - I love historical fiction, but haven't read anything by her yet.

My list of 25 books is a combo of review books and books that will help me complete the other reading challenges I am participating in.

Good luck!
