Fall Into Reading 2011

. at . 11 comments

My Summer Bucket List included “Reading 2 Books Just for Fun.” I read The Pilgrim’s Progress and The Hunger Games just for fun. And on a more serious note I read Why You Do The Things You Do and One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are. It was fun to accomplish this solitary reading goal.

It is also fun to accomplish a goal with a group. Sometimes I even get more done with a group. Callapidder Days is hosting a group goal: a Fall reading challenge. I checked out my bulging bookshelves at home and compiled a list mainly from my home library. I plan to read the below list of 10 books during the next 3 months of this challenge.

Have some books you want to read? Why don’t you join us? Katrina has very gentle guidelines about the challenge here. You make up your own list (long or short) of books and decide if you finish them all or not. You can even change your mind and add more books. There is no way to lose. The challenge goes from September 23-December 21, 2011.

Autobiography/Biography Books. 1/2

Children’s Books. 1/2

Growth Books 2/4

Holiday Inspired Books. 2/2
Your Turn . . .  Share what books are on your Fall 2011 list.

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

    Good luck!!!

      Good idea, Kristin, as you have a huge list (25 books) to read.

      I also want to read Pumpkin Roll by Josi S. Kilpack and 1225 Christmas Tree Lane by Debbie Macomber. Thanks for the reminder. I will check to see if the library has these.

    Looks like a good list. The 101 ways to have a Christian Christmas sounds really interesting. And I’ve got Only Nuns Changes Habits Overnight in my book basket.

    I loved Island of the Blue Dolphins! I’ve actually been thinking about re-reading it. I hope you enjoy it! My list is here.

    This is the second list where I have seen The Hiding Place. I read it years ago – tremendous book.

    You have some great books on your list. Good Luck.

    The Hiding Place is popping up on a number of lists. I read it last year and it’s fantastic. Really changes your perspective. I keep seeing What Women Fear on lists, as well. I’m definitely going to have to look into that one. Thanks for being part of the challenge. Enjoy your fall reading!

    “What Woman Fear…” is on a lot of lists. Might have to look tha tone up myself. Good luck with your goals!

    I always enjoy seeing what others are reading. Love the one about “Only Nuns Change Habits.. .” I’ll be interested to hear if it’s as amusing as the title!
