Fall Into Reading 2010

Autumn is my favorite season and the perfect time for a reading challenge!

This is my 3rd time participating in an event hosted by Katrina at Callapidder Days.  I previously participated in Fall Into Reading 2009 and Spring Reading Thing 2010. 

I am really looking forward to Fall Into Reading 2010 - I need a kick in the butt!

The rules are simple:  Make a list of books to read.  Read them.  Review them.  Link them.  Wrap it up.  I have the entire season to complete my list. 

In the Fall Into Reading 2009 I read 26 books. For Spring Reading Thing 2010 I read 42 books, almost doubling my previous attempt.  Let's see how I do this year.

Here are the books I would like to read this Fall:
(I will not include all the picture books, that wouldn't be fair. )

I have been in a reading funk since the end of August, so I am really hoping that, once again, Katrina's Fall Into Reading Challenge will put me back on my path to being the reader that makes people ask me:  HOW DO YOU READ SO MANY BOOKS??

Wish me luck!

That is a wonderfully ambitious reading list. Good luck! And thanks for choosing "Law of Attraction." I hope you like it.

A most eloquent, um, wow. That's a whole lotta books. I'm reading Jen Lancaster which gives me no points for scholar or intellect, but lots o' points for funny. She's hilarious, if you just want to laugh and think, "I wish I wrote that!"
