And with the coming of fall comes the time I start to think of cozy sweaters, leaves crunching, warm drinks and what used to be the Fall into Reading challenge. I don't think this is running anywhere anymore. I so miss it. I really looked forward to it each year with great anticipation and because I adore lists, especially book and reading lists, for my own personal satisfaction I'm doing a Fall Reading list. It helps me to focus my reading a bit and challenges me to read more and to turn off that television and choose to read instead. I found over the summer when I didn't have a list it was so easy to just turn on that silly thing because I was tired at the end of the day or to while away time playing games on Facebook. I know I am so much more satisfied at the end of the day when I've accomplished reading goals. For me, it's a better feeling using reading to relax.
If anyone would like to join me and share their own fall reading I would love that! One of the things I miss most about the Fall Into Reading Challenge was seeing what everyone else was reading. I added so many books to my own TBR pile from titles I found interesting on other's lists. You can spread it around on your own post if you'd like, grab the button and add a link to here so your own readers can link also if they want. This is totally no pressure. Just a list of reads we can share. I have no idea what to call this, so off the top of my head we'll just go with Read the Story Fall List.
So far here is my list for this fall. I have some review books coming that will be added to it. I'm excited already and even though fall is soooo busy for me I'm determined.
1. Operation Christmas Child - A story of Simple Gifts by Franklin Graham
finishing this one up. Such a good read of the history, logistics and stories of those red and green Christmas shoeboxes going to children all over the world.
One of my favorite authors and I've been waiting for this one since the beginning of the year. It's been getting really good reviews everywhere.
Another author I really enjoy. I think I found this one reviewed on Faith's blog awhile back if I'm not mistaken.
My token non-fiction. I am so not a non-fiction reader but I like to challenge myself with at least one on each list. This one looked very interesting and has a study guide in the back and videos to watch online if you really want to make it into a study. Thinking of this one for lady's study.
This one is in my pile out of the closet. So many books in there, so I'm determined to knock that down a bit. Was offered up on a review site awhile back and I was interested but couldn't get it because I was reviewing another book at the time.
I finished the first book of this 2 book series over the summer and really enjoyed it so I'm looking forward to the continuation of the story.
7. Reviewing the Real Life Devotional NIV Bible
Excited to get this one. It's edited by Lis Terkuerst.
I read another book by this author a few years back and really liked it. So when I saw this at the library sale for a dollar I couldn't pass it up. Leftover from my summer reads.
Well that is the list so far. It seems a little short for me, I usually have a least 10, but I've left spaces open for review books as they come. And if they don't come, then I'll just grab one of the 60 odd titles sitting in my closet or under my bed. Yes, I know. Don't judge me. In my defense 90% are all second hand purchases so didn't cost more than a few dollars per book at the most.
If you'd like to share your own fall reading list, I'm putting up a linky. I'd love to come and visit and see what you're reading. Please keep in mind if you share cover pics that there is younger readers that come to my blog and will probably have a look see. Please link to your specific post so others can find it easily and all posts linked that are not a reading list will be deleted. Hope to see your name on there and find some new folks too.
