Fall into Reading 2012

It's that time of year again...when we break out sweaters, start raking leaves, and snuggle in the bleachers at a local football game. But alas, let us not forget something we can do in the coziness of our favorite chair with a warm beverage by our side. Raise your hand if you're more than ready to Fall into Reading!

Set some goals, get a list together, and join in with host Katrina at Callapidder Days, myself, and many others who are looking to spend some time this fall season with our noses in a book. It all starts on September 22 and I'd love to see you join in. You can find all the pertinent info about the challenge here.

I've got a few books by new authors (or new to me) on my list, as well as a few Christmas books. I'm still trying to keep pace with my 120 book goal this year and still need to read 42 books, so I'm hoping having a goal will help me reach it.
