Fall Into Reading 2012

Well, sure, I have already bitten off more than I can chew this fall, even with my great plan to reduce stress and bring back the fun. But Fall Into Reading is actually going to help me. Hosted by Callapidder Days, all I have to do it make a list of the books I want to read between now and December 21st. That's it. A way for me to set a new plan for the rest of the year. I've decided that my original plan to get completely caught up on review books just won't work since it didn't allow me enough time to have any leeway to join things or add books just for fun. Thanks to Fall Into Reading, here's my new plan, a plan that allows me to work through review books while working in plenty of time for fun.

  1. Such a varied line-up! You're in for a treat with The Lost Wife.

  2. So, I only recognize a couple of books on your list...

    The Book Club Cook Book is pretty good. I've flipped through, but haven't read or made any of the recipes. I love the idea though.

    Cannery Row, I have not read. But I love Steinbeck, so I'm sure it's good.

    Eat Pray Love is really good. It makes me want to leave for a year and do the things she did.

  3. Good luck with this challenge! I need to join as well, as there are books enough here to fill my days, but I never find the time to commit to them!

  4. What fun! I think this is a great idea, Lisa. Even though there's planning involved, it sounds like a laid back challenge.

  5. I hope you have a great time reading The Little Stranger, it's one of my favorites.

  6. Cannery Row for the Feasting Challenge - clever! :-)

  7. sounds like a great plan, with lots of good books on your list.

    I just re-shelved about a dozen books that I had read but not yet reviewed. It felt like a pressure each time I glimpsed the stack on my desk; so nice to just let it go!

  8. I loved The Lost Wife so broke my heart!!!

  9. Fall feasting! I've been meaning to pick out a few recipes to try from the Book Club Cook Book but never seem to get very far. I'm terrible about cookbooks without pictures...

  10. Good luck with this challenge. I love how you separated your lists! I have 25 books on my list - a combo of new books coming out, review books, and books that will help me in finishing up the other reading challenges I am doing!
