Fall Into Reading 2011 Challenge


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. Her sign-up post will be active on September 23 but we can go ahead and plan our list and be ready to link up.

Check out the information post for more details--hope you'll join us!

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!

Fall Into Reading Challenge List:
[If I happen to read any of these between now & September 23, I will replace with others from the long list so I will have a total of eight books.]
