Happy First Day of Autumn!
With the first day of fall comes the start the Fall Into Reading Challenge sponsored by Katrina of Callapidder Days. More information is here, but the basic idea is to post a list of books you’d like to read this fall and share that via the links on Callapidder Days Fall Into Reading post. It is just a list of goals — there is no need to feel pressured, to feel like you’ve failed if you don’t read everything on your list. Sometimes something unexpected comes up, sometimes we read something other than what we listed. But it is fun to share our reading goals with others — my TBR list has expanded greatly by seeing what others are reading. Plus it is a way make time for books I had been wanting to read but just hadn’t picked up yet. Plus there are prizes! Posting guidelines are here. And even though it starts September 22, I think you can join in any time during the fall season. Then on the last day of fall, December 20, we write a wrap-up post about what we did actually read, and Katrina usually has discussion questions we can answer if we want to.
So, here is the list of books I would like to read this fall:
A Surrendered Heart by Tracy Peterson and Judith Miller, third in the Broadmoor Legacy series.
The Missing, second in the Seasons of Grace series by Beverly Lewis.
American Haven by Elisabeth Yates.
Plain Perfect by Beth Wiseman.
The Heirloom by Colleen L. Reece and Julie Reece-DeMarco, given to me by my friend, Carol.
My Heart Remembers by Kim Vogel Sawyer.
The Hidden Flame by Janette Oke and Davis Bunn. second in the Acts of Faith series. This doesn’t come out til Dec. 1, but I think I can get it in.
How To Read Slowly by James W. Sire. I keep saying I am going to read that and keep not getting to it. But I plan to.
Becoming God’s True Woman edited by Nancy Leigh DeMoss. I had read it earlier this year but am going through it again.
Dr. Frau: A Woman Doctor Among the Amish by Grace H. Kaiser.
My Heart Restored, a Bible study by June Kimmel.
I do have many more both on my shelves and on a list of books to read, so if I get through all these, I still have many more to choose from.
I also usually like to include one classic novel, but I don’t have a specific one in mind yet. Then again, I have so many other books stacked up to read, perhaps I’d better just concentrate on those.
