Fall Into Reading 2009


Once again Katrina at Callapidder Days is hosting a seasonal reading challenge, Fall Into Reading.  Basically you just come up with a list of books you would like to challenge yourself to read this fall and link up with all the others.  It’s a great way to meet fellow book lovers and steal from their lists.  ;)  Also there will be a book review page to link to as well,  so you can see exactly what everyone’s reading, how well they like it, and share your own reviews.

I also participate in the 50 book challenge group over at Shelfari.  I am up to 24 books so far!  This challenge will help me with that goal as well.

The List:

The Wednesday Sisters finished!  review here

The Sugar Queen  finished!  review here

Everyone Is Beautiful

The Zookeepers Wife

The Glass Castle

Gilead or Home by Marilynne Robinson

Peace Like A River

The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time finished!  review here

Still Life  Didn’t Like (just not my type of book)

Consumption  read about half, didn’t like

There, that’s an even ten, a nice number to go with.  There is a book sale at the library next weekend so I hope to pick up some of these or even some others that catch my eye.  Oh, who are we kidding, LOTS of others will catch my eye lol.  Library book sales rock!  So does the Fall Into Reading Challenge.  :)  Happy Reading!

UPDATE:  The book sale was good, not as much as I had hoped for, but I did find two more books to add to the list.

The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency Finished!  Review here

The Girl Who Stopped Swimming finished!  Review here

UPDATE:  Here are some I added on to the list.

Tears of the Giraffe  finished


  1. Great List. I had to stop going to the library book sales because I had too many books waiting to be read.

  2. I'm working on mine now, your list looks great!


  3. I loved The Curious INcident of the Dog at Night Time. My daugther didn't love it quite as much. OR much at all. : )

  4. Great list! Thanks for your comment on my list, as well! I have read and really enjoyed: The Sugar Queen, The Glass Castle, and The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time. The Sugar Queen is one of my faves. Love SAA.

    I have a copy of Peace Like A River, but haven't read it yet! Maybe we can discuss?

  5. Looks like a great list! I read Gilead for one of my challenges and liked it, even though it's not the type of book I usually read. And I think I need to add Zookeeper's Wife to my to-read list -- it looks very interesting.

    Thanks for being part of Fall Into Reading '09!

  6. I've been wanting to read The Zookeeper's Wife for a while now but haven't got around to it. It sounds interesting.

  7. I really enjoyed THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT TIME. So insightful. Hope you enjoy it!

    Have fun!

  8. I have Peace Like a River, and just bought The Glass Castle because I've heard such good things about it. Time to stop blogging and get reading!

  9. I enjoyed Glass Castle, Gilead didn't do much for me but my good friend LOVED it. I have Sugar Queen waiting but didn't put it on my list because I have too many already! You have a great list - good luck with the challenge.

  10. Hi Julie,
    You have a nice list of books.
    Congrats on the 2 library sale finds.
    Library Sales Rock!!


Thanks for stopping by!
