Fall Into Reading 2009

FIR09Medium So excited that it’s time again for Fall Into Reading 2009! This reading   challenge is hosted by Katrina of Callapidder Days.

Fall Into Reading 2009 is a fun, low-pressure reading challenge open to anyone and everyone. It will take place September 22nd-December 20th (which, not surprisingly, is the fall of 2009 in the U.S.).

To participate, here’s what you need to do:

  • Create a list of some books you’d like to read or finish this fall. This is the only real requirement for participating in the challenge.
  • Feel free to set some additional reading goals (such as reading to your kids two hours per week, getting through your pile of magazines, etc.). However, this is not required; setting additional goals is completely optional.
  • Write a blog post that includes the list of books you want to read (and any additional goals you’ve set), and get ready to post it on your blog on September 22nd.
  • Visit Callapidder Days starting September 22nd to sign up for the challenge. Katrina has an official launch post up that morning, complete with an area for you to submit a link to your personal Fall Into Reading post, where it will be added to the master list of participants.
  • Read! Work on your goals throughout Fall 2009.
  • Report your results. Write another blog post in December to let everyone know how you did. (Katrina will post an official wrap-up to the challenge on December 21st, where you’ll be able to share your results.)
  • Have fun! Visit other participants to see what they’re reading. Write reviews if you’re so inclined. But most of all, enjoy your fall reading!

1. My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult

2. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

    Not all the books are in that happy pile. Does that mean you still have to buy some of those books on your list? *raises eyebrows* :p

      Thanks, Nise! 🙂 Saw your Fall reading list on your blog. The Elephant Keeper sounds interesting. How’d you like it?

    Happy Reading!

    Many of your books are unfamiliar to me (which is one of the reasons I love looking at everyone’s lists!) I didn’t care for Something Borrowed, so I’m interested to see what you thought of Something Blue. I loved Love In the Time of Cholera.

    Thanks for visiting my blog, Alison! I actually just finished Something Blue and I loved it SO much better than Something Borrowed. Will blog about it soon.
