I'm joining in on the fun at the Fall Into Reading 2009 Challenge hosted by Callapidder Days

This is a no pressure challenge where we just make a list of books we plan to read from 9/22 through 12/23.








Here's my LIST:

To Kill a Mockingbird
Memoirs of a Geisha
Bel Canto
The Dogs Who Found Me
Drowning Ruth
The Good Good Pig
Running to the Mountain
Open House
Secrets She Left Behind
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
The Darkest Evening of the Year
A Year by the Sea
The Sun Also Rises
Pride and Prejudice
Jane Eyre
A Big Little Life
A Girl Named Zippy
The Education of Little Tree
Undaunted Courage
The Weight of Silence
Prince of Tides
Little Bird of Heaven
Homer's Odyssey
Olive Kitteridge
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

This list is made up of books from my library hold list, books to read for other challenges, books recommended by friends, and books in my TBR pile next to my bed. These are the books I'd like to get read before the end of the year!

I love To Kill a Mockingbird, Memoirs of a Geisha, Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre
Great list! enjoy your reading :)

Katherine said...

I just recently finished Pride and Prejudice for the first time and LOVED it! Happy reading!

Missy said...

Wow...a big list!! I don't think I could accomplish that many books by December. If I had more time to read, then maybe. I hate that I have to work full time....it takes up so much valuable time where I could be READING!! :)
Your page is cute, and I grabbed your button for my blog! :)

Beth said...

I liked Homer's Odyssey. It is a cute story. You have a great list!

Jennifer, Snapshot said...

Thanks for commenting on my post. It looks like we have some similar tastes. I haven't read any Joyce Carol Oats. Little Bird of Heaven will be my first.

Lynne said...

Oops, Redeeming Love is supposed to be on that list too. Especially since I'm picking it up from the library today!

Ruth said...

To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my favorites.

Shauna- Reading and Ruminations said...

That is quite the list you've got there. Good luck with this. I tried to be pretty modest with mine, since I tend to fail at longer lists.

Pride and Prejudice and To Kill a Mockingbird are two of my all-time favorites, so I really hope you enjoy them!

My list is here.

Katrina @ Callapidder Days said...

Wow - great list with lots of variety. I think I've read about 1/4 of them, but there are several on your list that I've been curious about.

Enjoy your fall reading, and thanks for being part of the challenge!

Susanne said...

Lots of great reads here! I think I'll have to add Memoirs of a Geisha to my list if I can manage to squeeze it in.

Sarah said...

Hi Lynne!
Glad to see that I am not the only one who hasn't read a Jane Austen book! :) There are quite a few books on your list that I've had on my to-read-someday list....hmmm, maybe I'll do better on my list than I am anticipating and add a few of yours!

Lynn said...

I've read eight of these on your list and have to say, not a bad one in the bunch :) My favorites were probably A Girl Named Zippy (it has a fun sequel, too -- something like And Then She Got Up Off the Couch) and Memoirs of a Geisha. You should have a really fun fall with these titles. Happy reading.

You have some great books on your fall reading list. Enjoy.

Vivienne said...

Excellent list there. I loved Memoirs of a Geisha.

Just Mom said...

That's a great list. I recently read Pride and Perjudice and listened to the audiobook of Open House. Always fun to see titles I recognize!

Jenny said...

Looks like quite a list. *grin*

Blessings...and happy reading!
