Fall Into Reading 2008

UPDATE: This was my first challenge and I failed miserably! I only read two books on my list and I probably read only 4-6 books that were not on the list. There were quite a few books that came in for review shortly after I made this list and I felt obligated to drop what I was doing to get those reviews out.

My TBR shelf is frowning at me as I hang my head in shame.

What do they say? Better late than never? I’ve been reading everyone’s Fall Into Reading 2008 lists and you’ve all inspired me to give this challenge a try.

This is my first challenge. I know my list isn’t nearly as long as some of yours but hopefully it will keep me on track. I’m needing a little more structure these days. I’m sure there will be some review copies tossed my way between now and the end of this challenge but these are the ones that I want to read FOR SURE.

The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski
The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
The Secret River by Kate Grenville
Wife in the North by Judith O’Reilly
The Inheritance of Loss by Kiran Desai
Dewey: The Small Town Library Cat Who Touched The World by Vicki Myron
Nights in Rodanthe by Nicholas Sparks
In The Woods by Tana French (started this one but I need motivation to finish it)

So there you have it.

  1. It’s great that you joined in the challenge. Good too that you have a reasonable list. I’m never going to read all that’s on mine. I’ve got Dewey to read too-did you get it from LT?

  2. I’m doing this challenge too. 🙂 Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for commenting at J. Kaye’s Book Blog. Hope to see more of you.

  3. Good luck with this challenge. I read <>The Woman in White<> this year and while it took me a while to get through it, it was fun. I’ll be curious to see what you think of Kate Grenville’s book too. Oh and I’ve heard great things about <>In the Woods<>! I’m surprised to hear you’re having trouble finishing it…

  4. Don’t beat yourself up, it’s just a guideline really. I wandered offlist a lot but I’m still happy to have discovered some great reads. Edgar Sawtelle and The Secret River are both excellent stories. I’m going to read Dewey and In The Woods too. Happy reading.

  5. I admire you for posting this. I didn’t bother. At least you read something. I didn’t. I promise to do better in 2009. Seriously. No really this time. In fact, I already am with the Winter Reading Challenge. But when I don’t, I just move on and forget about it…lol! No worries.I really wanted to read “Nights in Rodanthe” by Nicholas Sparks, but I am scared I’ll blubber like a baby.
