Reading Challenge: Fall Into Reading 2008

So, I've decided to do another challenge. With everything that has gone on, and is going on, I find myself oddly busy and free at the same time. I have a lot more to do at the house, and yet I have a lot more time to spend as I please. I don't have a lot of time to commit to outside stuff, because we never know what the school load will be for Chris. So I'm going to "try" and get the rest of the books out of the way for the 100+ Reading Challenge. So the Fall Into Reading 2008 is a perfect compliment to that challenge. It officially starts on Sept 22 and ends Dec 20th. My goal is the followng 40 books:
  1. Gone with the Wind, Margaret Mitchell

Wow - that's a long list, but a great one. I really liked Ender's Game, and I'm a fan of Dean Koontz and Joel Rosenberg. Enjoy your fall reading -- hope you get through them all! :)

That is quite a list! I just finished Gone with the Wind this weekdend it was amazing.. I might have to add the sequel to the TBR list.

I love "The Cat Who..." series, although I had trouble with the first one in the series. The plot is based around art collecting so it was a little harder for me to read. I also read The Shack a couple of months ago. It was different, but I'm glad I read it.
