Fall Into Reading 2009 Wrap Up

12/21/09


I can't believe that it's already Dec. 21st and I have come to the end of my first reading challenge with Katrina at Callapidder Days! Wow, that sure flew by fast! I'm glad that I started a short list for my first challenge. I have been very busy these last few weeks.

My Original List:


The Transformation by Terri Krauss
Texas Heat by Debra White Smith
Take Two by Karen Kingsbury
Shades of Blue by Karen Kingsbury
Sound of Sleigh Bells by Cindy Woodsmall
Love Finds You in Lonesome Prairie Montana by Tricia Goyer & Ocieanna Fleiss

Did you finish reading all the books on your fall reading list? If not, why not?

No, I wasn't able to finish all the books on my list. I was on the waiting list at the library for Take Two and Shades of Blue by Karen Kingsbury. My turn on the list still hasn't come around yet.


Did you stick to your original goals or did you change your list as you went along?

Yes, I stuck to my original goals to finish the books on my list.



What was your favorite book that you read this fall?

My favorite book that I read was Sound of Sleigh Bells by Cindy Woodsmall.



Did you discover a new author or genre this fall? Did you love them?

I discovered Cindy Woodsmall's writing and most definitely have fallen in love with her writing style.


Did you learn something new because of Fall Into Reading 2009 – something about reading, about yourself, or about a topic you read about?

I learned that I need to schedule time for reading. I am often so busy on the computer doing business stuff, tweeting, blogging, etc. that I just haven't found time to read as much as I would like.


What was your favorite thing about the challenge?

My favorite part about the reading challenge was being able to set some goals and try my best to follow through on them. I have never tried this before and I think it gave me a lot of motivation!
