Fall Into Reading 2010: Start Reading!

Welcome to Fall Into Reading 2010! Apparently, our local weather doesn’t realize today is the first day of autumn (Highs in the 80s? Not quite the crisp-and-cool feel I was looking for…), but it’s true. Fall begins today! And so — hooray! — does Fall Into Reading 2010!

I have to attend a preschool function for moms this morning, but rest assured that once I get home, I plan to spend the majority of the day checking out your posts and getting to work on my own Fall Into Reading stack-o-books.

I hope you’re ready to read, too! And whatever you’re reading for this challenge, I hope you enjoy each and every book!

Here’s a brief recap of how to be a part of Fall Into Reading 2010:

  • Make a list of books you want to read (or finish reading) this fall. Your list can be as long or as short as you’d like. (Also, feel free to modify your list during the challenge if it’s not working for you.)
  • Write a blog post containing your list and submit it to this post using the Mr. Linky below.
  • Get reading! The challenge goes from today, September 22nd, through December 20th.
  • Check out other participants’ lists and add to your own to-read-someday pile!
  • Write a post about your challenge experience in December, telling us all about whether you reached your goals and how Fall Into Reading went for you. But remember: this is a low-pressure challenge that should be fun. As long as you do some reading this fall (and enjoy it!), that’s good enough for me.

There’s a Mr. Linky at the end of this post. Please use it to link to your blog post containing your Fall Into Reading list. Remember to link to your specific post, not just your general blog homepage. People will be stopping by for days (or weeks!) and when you link to your specific post, it will make it easier for everyone to find your reading list. Also, if you don’t mind, please link back here from your post so that your readers can come check out all the other participants.

So post your list, grab a mug of your favorite autumn beverage, and check out all the other bloggers who love to read as much as you do!

Oh, and one more thing. Every week (beginning next Tuesday), I’ll be posting a question relating to reading — there will be questions about your reading habits, reading memories, or current reading experiences.  I’d love to hear your thoughts on reading, so be sure to check back or subscribe to my feed so you don’t miss a question. Thanks!

  6. Looking forward to seeing what everyone else is reading. Decided to link to my book blog this time around seeing as that is where my reviews will be, though I did post the list on my main/homeschool blog

  10. Thanks for hosting!

    Love the Tuesday question idea!

  11. Thanks for hosting :D

  12. So excited to get started! Thanks for hosting a great challenge.

  13. Thanks for hosting these reading challenges. I have a short list this time around. If I finish the books I’d like to read, you bet I’ll be looking at others’ lists. :-D

  14. This is the first time that I’ve participated. Thanks so much for hosting the challenge! I can’t wait to read everyone’s lists. Happy Reading Everyone!!

  15. I am looking forward to visiting the other participants to check out their reading lists and to start some reading of my own, thanks for hosting Katrina!

  16. Excited to start reading again……
    New follower here….look forward to seeing what everyone else is going to read and maybe get a few idea books myself…
    Happy Reading:)

  17. I am all signed up and ready to get started. Thanks for this great challenge

  18. I did this last fall and SOOOO enjoyed it! I know people who think I’m nuts, but they are probably the same people who do exercise tapes by themselves and then go for a 6 mile run, instead of waiting for people to knock on their doors and make them walk for exercise… I’m social and this gets me going. Spring was too busy to do this, and my reading has fallen off, but I’m ready for a fire in the fireplace and some good reading, with a touch of knittin’ thrown in for good measure!!

  19. This is my first attempt at the reading challenge. I’m going to go home tonight and read until my eyes are blurry. Looking forward to reading everyone’s posts!

  20. I love a good challenge and really hope I can keep up with this one!
    So glad I fount his challenge…and your blog!
    Happy Fall!!
    P.S. It is in the upper 80′s here today as well and I hate it!! I love to coolness of fall and cannot wait it to arrive…temperature wise! :)

  21. Phew… just finished my book list. I knew what I wanted to read, but I procrastinated making my post. (wanted to have photos of each book because, well… I just wanted to!). Good luck and happy reading to all !!!

  22. I love a reading challenge and I appreciate that reviews are optional. Nice and easy and fun. Off to start my first book as our school day (or at least my part of it) is done!!
    Thanks for having it.

  23. Thanks again for hosting, Katrina. This challenge is one of my favorite things about fall!

    Happy Reading Everyone!

  24. I’m counting on this challenge to keep my butt in gear for getting some much needed reading done this fall! Included in my list are 2 ARCs that I’ve been dying to read and this challenge will give me just the right amount of accountability I need to read them!

  25. This is my first reading challenge! This is going to be so fun! Can’t wait to check out what others are reading too!

  26. Yay! I linked up! I’ve *only* got 18 books to read. Well. 17 books. One of my choices isn’t being released until January, so it’s technically a Winter choice, I guess. Can’t wait! :][

  27. Please note my post was up at 9am, even though i was in a meeting and couldn’t link up till now ;) (the slightly competitive side of me emerges for a brief moment!)

    Thanks again for doing this!!

  28. I get so excited about this every year. Can’t wait to see what everyone is reading. My students asked me to post my list to see what I was reading. It motivates them as well.

  29. So excited that you are doing this challenge. I participated in a summer reading challenge hosted by Julie over at My Book Retreat and I was able to read 24 out of the 25 books I had initially put down plus 8 others…great way to get through all my books sitting on my shelves waiting to be read!

    Good luck everyone!!!

  30. Thanks! I just signed up!

  31. I feel like this is wildly appropriate for me considering all the novels I had to purchase for the fall semester at my college. Not to mention one of my classes is a journalism class, and the review is a big part of it, so writing up reviews for my blog is going to be good practice.

  32. Hi, Nice to find you. I look forward to more reading this fall.
    I live in FL, so the temps here are very warm into November, but I can pretend right?

  33. Thanks for hosting the challenge again this year. I always over”book” myself, but it’s still fun setting these goals. Good luck on your own list!

  34. So excited about this one! And I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone else is reading. :)

  35. Books + List = Fabulous!

  36. Thanks for doing this! I now have some direction!!!

  37. Thank you for hosting. Found your blog via my google reader of all the blogs I follow, that were participating, so had to come on over, visit, sign up and become a follower. Have been in a reading slump and this is exactly what I need to end it. So a big thank you!!!
    CMash
    Love your blog and absolutely love the name.

  38. Terra sent me over here and what a thrill! I am an avid reader always on the search for a good book.
    My “Spring” into reading list will be made up of titles from here so thank you for being here. I will recommend the site to my reading mates!

  39. I think this sounds like a fun challenge, and since I have so many books waiting to be read, maybe this will give me some organization to my reading. Look forward to the question each week, and will try to keep up, with my reading and answering the question each week. Here’s to Happy Reading.

  40. A day late, signing up (I was shopping with my mom, yesterday), but my link is now up! I’m so excited — I love this challenge! Thanks for hosting, Katrina! :D

    ~MizB

  41. I sheepishly post my scrawny list of 8 books. But I am excited to participate for the first time! Yeah!

  42. Hi – joining Fall into Reading for the first time. Thanks for hosting. Love seeing all the lists.

  43. My first link 118 was wrong number 119 is permalinked. Thanks for hosting this. I am psyched.

  45. I’m excited to get started!

  46. Thanks for hosting Fall Into Reading! I posted my sad list of 8 books and can’t wait to get inspired by what everyone else is reading! Happy Reading!

  47. Hello all! This is my first challenge this year, and I’m really excited to get started! =)

  48. As always, I am psyched to be part of this reading challenge! In addition to meeting many interesting new books, I also meet many wonderful new cyber friends through this challenge. Thank you, Katrina, for hosting us once again! Blessings! – Miss Chris

  49. I love any excuse to read! Yay!

  50. What a fun idea! I’m looking forward to this.

  51. This looks like a really fun challenge and I signed up for it! Thanks for hosting it!

  52. Happy Reading!

  53. Amazing Challenge!
    I think my blog is the only one in spanish.. isn’t it?

    Happy readings!

  54. Okay, I think I did this right! Thanks for hosting this! I need and want to read more than just fiction, so I challenged myself with three non-fiction reads. Should be easy, right?

  55. This is the first time participating. Looking forward to this challenge.

  56. Margret Schlageter says:

    I know it is past the start date, but I wanted to join in. :D

  57. …and away we go! Thanks Katrina!

  58. Very excited even if I am a couple of days late!! Oopsy.

  59. This sounds like a lot of fun, and I’ve never used the Linky thing before, so I’m sure I’ll learn something. Thanks for hosting this challenge. :)

  60. Great idea! I had already posted that I planned to read eight books this month, and I’ve finished six of them. I’m going to extend my list for this project!

  61. Katrina, a bit late joining the party, but looking forward to it!

  62. Can’t wait to dive into all the books on my nightstand!!!!!!

  63. Can’t wait to dive into all of the books on my nightstand!!

  64. Thanks so much for hosting this!

  65. Thanks for hosting this! I’ve been wanting to read so many books! This will help me so much. :D

  66. Katrina, I had an anonymous blog when I signed up, but my husband and I decided NOT to be anonymous afterall … so I copied my list over to the new blog and resigned up. If you can delete links from here, can you delete #46 (Yama @ The Olive Branch) from the Linky?

  67. Neat challenge! I also signed up my daughter (Unicorn)!

  68. I just heard about the reading challenge and hopped over to join in. Can’t wait to visit other sites to see what everyone is hoping to read.

  69. I am relatively new at this and I have never even thought about a challenge but somehow…your description and the relaxed pace and structure of this makes me want to participate…I will figure out Linky…Mr. Linky? and just do it!!!

  70. First timer here. But I’m so excited about the challenge. Thanks for hosting!

  71. This puts me in mind of my onw blogfest about 10 best novels. I’m really pleased someone else is considering the printed word rather than just TV and film, after all we’re all writers here. :O)

  72. Very excited about this challenge :)

  73. Time to start reading!

  75. Finally jumping in, better late than never!

  76. I love a good-challenge even though I am coming aboard a little late. Thanks for hosting!

  77. This is my first time doing Fall Into Reading. Good luck everyone!

  78. Thanks for hosting this! Can’t wait to dive into my list: http://layeredlemon.wordpress.com/2010/10/05/fall-into-reading-2010/

  79. Ok, I’m confused, where’s my sign-up post? :( I linked directly on 22 September & now it’s gone. Is it deleted? If it is, I don’t understand why…

  80. I just found this and joined! What a great event. Thanks for all of your hard work.

  81. I hope using livejournal is ok for this. I assuming so, but most of the other participants I flipped through were using blogspot.

    This is my first ever any sort of Read-A-Thon type thing, so wish me luck. It’ll be a challenge, especially with school work!

  82. Thanks for hosting this. Sorry…I’m late in joining. So many good books…so little time :)!
    LivingforGod´s last post ..Fall Into Reading 2010My Profile

  83. I’m jumping in a bit late, but am excited to join in!

  84. This should be fun, as long as no one grades me on my completion tally! LOL!

  85. What an awesome challenge!!

    Thanks for keeping reading important. I probably do too much reading, when I should be writing. My love of reading drew me to writing. I love falling in love with new characters and following them on their journeys. It is the transportation to new worlds that keeps me coming back again and again.

  86. I found your site after the read-a-thon from someone who’d joined the challenge and I decided to join too. My link doesn’t seem to have appeared yet – I’ll wait a few minutes to see if it shows up before trying again.

  87. I love to read anything and everything, check out my great books I’ve read and even better reviews and find something new to read! Heather

  88. Joining late but couldn’t miss this one!

  89. I finally have my list up! This is a great incentive to get through these books! Thanks!

  90. I just recently learned about this. I’m excited to be joining up, just bummed I’m already a month behind! I hope I can get lots read!!! :)

  91. We’re nearly half way through the reading challenge. I’ve finished 14 books this far! How is everyone else doing?

  92. I’m a little late, but I’m excited! Looking forward to it!

  93. Hi, I joined really, really late. But I already had a stack of books I needed to get to so I thought I would give it a try. I just found this tonight! I am going to go back and look at your Tues. questions. Todays seemed so fun. And I’ll enjoy visiting everyones blogs.
    See ya.
