Fall Into Reading 2009

Well the opening day of Fall Into Reading is finally here.

This is the list of books I'd like to finish reading during this challenge:

* One Imperfect Christmas by Myra Johnson
* Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum
* A Quilter's Holiday by Jennifer Chiaverini
* Stray Affections by Charlene Ann Baumbich
* Extraordinary by John Bevere
* Kiss Me Again by Barbara Wilson
* Limelight by Melody Carlson
* What Matters Most by Melody Carlson
* Leaving Carolina by Tamara Leigh
* Sound of Sleigh Bells by Cindy Woodsmall
* Love and Respect by Emerson Eggerichs
* White Picket Fences by Susan Meissner

A few years back I was in a couple of reading circles. Reading circles are great on a number of levels, depending on how they are run. One I participated in the books were circulated - so you purchased one book but got to read nine. But I think the best thing is the opportunity to read a book that you may otherwise have never picked up off the shelf. One book I got on my first time through a reading circle was Left Behind. Just from the cover of the book I'm not so sure I would have even picked it up to read the back. But I so enjoyed that series.

Most of the books on my reading list this time are books I will be reviewing for publishers. And some of them are books I might not have chosen were I not given a copy and requested to read them. And I have a few non-fiction books in there as well. I definitely prefer fiction to non-fiction but I'm trying to use this challenge to expand my "shelves" a bit.

And as an added bonus, a number of the books I will be reviewing I have been given a second copy to give away. So be sure to not only check on my progress at reading through my list and read my review but to have a chance to win a free copy of a book.

If you haven't joined this challenge but would like to you can click on the link on my sidebar.

Let the reading begin!



  1. I like the idea of a book club that circulates the books. I've got to check out Leaving Carolina by Tamara Leigh.

  2. I've read all the Elm Creek Quilt books and enjoyed them..
    I also have Love & Respect on my list, because my husband bought it and gave it to me..I think he's hoping for reform!!
    Many of your other ones are going on my checkout list to checkout after I made my goal! Although I need a Christmas one for the challenge, so perhaps I'll do one of yours!!
    Happy Reading to you

  3. Sound of Sleigh Bells and White Picket Fences should be good reads.

  4. Sound of Sleigh Bells was awesome - I'll be reviewing it next week - AND I'll have a copy to give away so be sure to check back.
