From Callapidder Days:

Here’s a brief recap of how to be a part of Fall Into Reading 2012:

  • 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.
  • Write a blog post containing your list and submit it to this post using the Mr. Linky.
  • Get reading! The challenge goes from September 22nd through December 21st.
  • Check out other participants’ lists and add to your own to-read-someday pile, if you wish!
  • 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.

    Great list! I almost put Suite Francaise on my list also but it ended up getting cut by me trying to be realistic about how many books I can read in one season! lol Good luck with your challenge!

    What a list! I am impressed. I hope you’re able to make your goal of 50 books!

    I wanted to add Guns, Germs, and Steel to my list for the challenge but it has a VERY long waitlist at my library for some reason. There is no way I’d get my hands on it this year!

    Happy reading!!
