Fall into Reading 2009

The time has come for the fabulously famous Fall into Reading 2009 challenge hosted by Katrina at Callapidder Days. I hope you will join in by taking the opportunity to get some reading goals put together so we can do some serious reading between September 22 and December 20. I'll put my list of books below, but I am also including in my challenge a personal goal to read at least one hour every day...something I don't always get a chance to do. (I can already foresee some late nights in my future...*grin*) I'm also including my Bonus Books list for any books I read above and beyond my original list. Happy reading!

An hour a day sounds great! I bet if I could do that consistently, I'd get through my to-read pile more quickly!

Thanks for being part of Fall Into Reading '09!

Susanne said...

Looks like you have some great fall reading there! And hour a day is a great goal to put in the midst of this challenge!
