Fall Into Reading 2012 | The List

Well, after two read-a-thons and Book Blogger Appreciation Week in the last few weeks, you'd think I'd be challenged and evented out. :) But when Crystal and Melanie started tweeting about another challenge, I was intrigued. After much thought and careful considering ... er, thinking about all the unread books on my shelves ... I decided it could be fun. Count me in for Fall Into Reading 2012!

Fall Into Reading 2012 is hosted by Katrina at Callapidder Days and lasts from September 22-December 21 (which just so happens to be fall!). It's a pretty laid-back challenge. Just set a goal, make your list, and start reading!

My Goal: 45 books

The List: My list includes 60 books. Some are books that I've committed to read for blog tours or reviews. Some are ones that I want to read for fun and just haven't gotten around to them yet. It's hard for me to stick to a list, so I'm giving myself a few choices. And I know this is a ton of books! (I even trimmed it down a little!) There are just SO many great books that I want to read!!!

  1. We listed the exact amount of books (60!) on our posts! LOL! Glad Crystal and my tweets intrigued you to join along on this challenge!

    It's hard for me to stick to a list as well... especially when ya might get a new book that you want to read right then. LOL! :)

    You have a great list of reads ahead of you and I hope you are able to reach your goal. :)

  2. Well I saw this post and then I saw that Megan and Melanie were doing it too, so I knew I had to join! I have the same goal as you and you have a lot of great books on your list! A ton of them I've read already and there are a bunch that I want to read! Good luck on finishing your goals!

  3. Amazing goal - 45 books, that is quite something! I hope you reach it without getting too sidetracked!
    Good Luck.

  4. Haha, now I don't have the longest TBR list! xD Good luck with the challenge =) I'm following on GFC, and look forward to reading future posts.

  5. I'm so glad you decided to join, Brooke! The next few months of reading should be lots of fun :)

    And that's a great list of books you have there. I hope you're able to reach your goal!

    I gotta get back to reading now :D

  6. Oh, I love me some Iris Johansen! I'm jealous you haven't read those two books yet and get to read them for the first time. :) Kisses From Katie is very inspiring and I'm seeing it on several lists (and I'm seeing lots of people planning to read Full Disclosure also). Looks like a great list, lots of fun reads!

  7. Your goal of 45 books makes me feel much better about mine of 20. :-)

    Kisses from Katie is one of yours that stands out to me because I wanted to add that one to my list too, but I didn't. Maybe next time. Enjoy!

  8. 45 books? Yikes! I'm very impressed! Looks like you're including some authors I've really enjoyed, like Dee Henderson and Ann Tatlock. You have great variety to keep you busy this fall. Enjoy all that reading, and thanks for being part of the challenge!

  9. I see quite a few of my favorite authors on your list! Have a great Fall of reading.

  10. Another gal with a goal of 45 books. Whew, that is amazing. Happy reading!

  11. That's quite a list! I see several titles and authors I need to check out. Good luck with your fall reading.

  12. Another huge list of books - I wished I could have tried for a larger list again this year. Good Luck.
    You can find my list at Page Turners Blog

  13. Reading the list is exhausting - I can't imagine tackling all those books. The title I was most intrigued by was The Rose of Winslow Street - have you read anything else by that author?

  14. Wow, sounds like a fun challenge!! I've participated in a few reading challenges over the years and have enjoyed participating in them. Some of the reading challenges I completed and others I didn't.

    I am impressed with your reading goals!! Good luck and I hope you read all 45 books.

  15. Impressive list! I feel like a wimp for only picking three. ;)

    Happy reading!!


I love comments! Thanks for letting me know what you think!
