Challenge Complete: Fall Into Reading

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

Here we are at the end of the Challenge. And I did pretty darn good. I finished all the books on my original short list and even added about 8 more books or so. I still need to read 12 more books if I'm going to meet my Outdo Yourself goal...but without this challenge I wouldn't be as close as I am. Had a great time and will join in next year if Katrina hosts again.

One of the things Katrina wanted to know as we wrap this up was what our favorite Fall Reading Challenge book was. I'd have to say Savage Beauty. I really enjoyed learning more about Edna St. Vincent Millay, one of my favorite poets.
