Fall Into Reading 2012: Start Reading!

Welcome to Fall Into Reading 2012! There’s no doubt about it. The cooler temperatures we’ve had lately confirm what the calendar tells me: Fall has most definitely arrived. And while I love the pumpkins and the apples and the steaming coffee that comfort me every fall, I really love Fall Into Reading! I’m excited to read some books that I’ve been telling myself I need to read, books that have been recommended to me, and books that have just been on my to-read list for way too long.

I hope you’re ready to read, too! And whatever goals you’ve set for yourself this fall, I hope you’re excited about pursuing them, and that you enjoy every book you read!

Here’s a brief recap of how to be a part of Fall Into Reading 2012:

  • 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.
  • 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 21st.
  • Check out other participants’ lists and add to your own to-read-someday pile, if you wish!
  • 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.

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!

And don’t forget… Periodically throughout the challenge, I’ll be posting questions relating to reading. I’d love to hear your thoughts, so be sure to check back or subscribe to my feed so you don’t miss a question. Thanks!

  23. Whew! I JUST slid in and got it posted at 11:52pm! I had wanted to add photos, but I had several posts I’ve already done today, and I have computer eyes now! Now I have ANOTHER POST TO DO YET! My post I do EVERY Sunday morning up by NOON! It is the New York Times Top 15 Best Sellers for this previous week! I post it EVERY Sunday by noon! You’ll have to come to my HOME PAGE on a Sunday and check it out!
    Well, I HOPE I have not given myself to tough of a challenge, but I counted out the weeks, and it’s ONLY ’2′ books per week. Plus, some of them are books for “ME” to read for our other Challenge – the Goodreads Challenge – The Just For Fun Reading Challenge 2012! I made SURE to include those books!

  31. So excited about this! thanks for hosting!

  32. I almost missed out on the fun this year! My reading has been a bit spotty recently but I love my list! I have pretty much thrown all my other challenges out the window and only chose books that I really wanted to read–no rhyme or reason-
    Thanks for hosting again!

  33. Hurray! I’ve seen your challenge mentioned on a few blogs over the past several years and decided it was time I jumped in. :D Thanks for hosting it!


  34. YEAH for the Fall Reading Challenge!! although most of my reading is done in the summer because I don’t teach in the summer, I do read all year long!!! I love reading…most of my books will probably carry over into the winter months since Autumn is SUCH a busy time here at home, at work and with my youngest and all her dance and music activities….not to mention the approach of the holidays. Once XMas is done and we are in the winter season, I’ll have even more time to read in the evenings and on weekends!! reading is a fave past time!! Happy Reading to you!!

  35. SO happy and excited about this. I needed a kick in the butt to get me reading again and this was just the thing to do it. I put my name on the linky list and already wrote up my blogpost. Plus, I’m a new follower. It’s nice to meet you!! Thanks again.

  36. Oh my goodness, I posted my list last Saturday and then completely forgot to link it up! Lots of craziness going on around here, but am excited to get reading. :)
