Fall Into Reading 2010

***Challenge completed. See my wrap-up post here.***

Dates: 22 September through 20 December 2010
Hosted by: Katrina at Callapidder Days

Guidelines (quoted from the challenge website):
  • Make a list of books you want to read (or finish reading) this fall. Your list can be as long or as short as you’d like. (Also, feel free to modify your list during the challenge if it’s not working for you.)
  • Write a blog post containing your list and submit it...using the Mr. Linky [on the challenge announcement page].
  • Get reading! The challenge goes from today, September 22nd, through December 20th.
  • Check out other participants’ lists and add to your own to-read-someday pile!
  • Write a post about your challenge experience in December, telling us all about whether you reached your goals and how Fall Into Reading went for you. But remember: this is a low-pressure challenge that should be fun. As long as you do some reading this fall (and enjoy it!), that’s good enough for me.
