Fall into Reading 2011 Wrap-up



This fall just seemed to fly by...but alas, Fall into Reading 2011 has come to an end. Here's a wrap-up of the last three months.

Did you finish reading all the books on your fall reading list? If not, why not?

No...just kind of hit a funk and couldn't get caught back up...also wanted to read a couple of Christmas books from the library before I had to return them. There was also a book on my list that had some profanity in it and my limit is "three strikes (words) and you're out", so I didn't finish it.

Did you stick to your original goals or did you change your list as you went along?

Just added a few Christmas-themed books.

What was your favorite book that you read this fall? Least favorite? Why?

No least favorites, but my most favorite was probably A Brides Portrait of Dodge City, Kansas...very engaging and hard to put down. Sketchy Behavior was probably a close second.

Did you discover a new author or genre this fall? Did you love them? Not love them?

Loved Erica Vetsch...

Did you learn something new because of Fall Into Reading 2011 – something about reading, about yourself, or about a topic you read about?

I had high hopes that with my kids in school I'd be able to read more...definitely wishful thinking on my part. =)

Here's my original list...read books are in bold print.

Attracted to Fire was on my list too ~ did you enjoy it?

Great list of books!! Several of my books this go-round were Christmas related which was much fun right at the end. :)
