Fall Into Reading 2007


Yeah...I know. No more challenges. It amazes me how many there actually are!! But Katrina from Callapidder Days sponsors both the big Spring and Fall challenges, and she does a fantastic job. Already there are close to 200 participating. Besides, I just showed you all the books I have to review....and I'm one of those anal people that derives pure joy from checking something off a list!! So, if you want to follow me along in this insane journey, click on this link and join up!

The rules are simple. The Challenge starts on the first day of fall (which was actually Sunday!) and goes until December 21st. You can read as many or as few books as you like. And she always has tons of prizes and book giveaways. Besides, it's a link to lots of other book related sites.
Here is my list of books:
  • Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  • The Gun Seller by Hugh Laurie
  • Betrayed: A House of Night Novel by PC Cast and Kristin Cast
  • Kiss & Blog by Alyson Noel
  • School's Out by Christophe Dufosse
  • The Reincarnationist by MJ Rose
  • Death Dance by Linda Fairstein

See...now I can check mark these AND get some reviews done!! Killing two birds with one stone! I love it when a plan comes together!

You are crazy, but you are correct that there is something extremely satisfying about crossing something off a list. Have fun with your challenges.

Love in the Time of Cholera is so good! It's in the top 3 books I've read this year...I absolutely loved it! Hope you do too :)

CDPJ said...

That list if for wimps! Just kidding of course. I don't have to write reviews for any of the 14,000 books on my list, so I'm the one who's got it easy :-)

Good luck with the challenge!

I love crossing off things on a list. Feels so good.

Kristy said...

My fall challenge is to finish Love in the Time of Cholera with our group. LOL. Good Luck!

Bookfool said...

It's so hard passing up a challenge. The tips of my fingers are tickling; I might actually give in and go for this one. I hope not.

Read The Gun Seller, first, please!!!! I want to hear another opinion. I LOVED it!!!!!

Hugh Laurie--THE Hugh Laurie from House? Interesting.

I totally GET the joy of checking a book off a list.

I raise you on the anal score with how much I enjoy noting the date I started the book, and when I completed the book. :)

Of course, you're either very driven (or slightly insane) for signing up for yet another challenge. Hee.

But if you're really doing it, then, just enjoy!

What is it about crossing things off a list?? LOL! Oh well at least we're having fun and reading some good books while we're at it! :)

Katrina said...

I'm always glad to visit another book-a-holic. And I'm a compulsive list-maker and crosser-offer too. :) Thanks for being part of Fall into Reading!

Nymeth said...

Yay, you are reading Love in the Time of Cholera! I can't wait to see what you think.

I love the button for that challenge. I realllly can't join any more, though.

iliana said...

I can't believe how many new challenges have popped up on the blogosphere. I want to join them all but I have to resist some right? :)
Good luck with your new challenge! I absolutely love Love in the Time of Cholera. It's one of my most favorite books. I hope you enjoy it.

Melody said...

Hey Stephanie! I'm participating too! And guess what, I'm going to read School's Out as well!!! ;)

Trish said...

Oh, you just can't resist can you?? :) Great list, though!

Pattie said...

I would love to hear how good a writer Hugh Laurie is...and how do you feel about Cholera being chosen by Oprah???
