Fall Into Reading Wrap Up!

Even though it is SO not fall like outside (it's cooooolllllllddddd!), we're wrapping up the Fall Into Reading Challenge hosted by Katrina of Callapidder Days. So, I bet you're wondering how I did, huh?

Not so good, when you think about it...

I picked a host of books I've been intending to read, or was asked to read. I had four different catagories, and a wide variety of books to select from.

For awhile, I was knocking them off my list right and left, and reviewing each one. But then I got sick, and began to struggle to concentrate and focus on what I was reading. So I slowed waaaaaayyyyy down.

Then, I kept getting books to review in the mail. So I tweaked my list to fit the needed reading. But then I felt as if I was cheating, so I quit adding and just tried to read what I had on my list AND the other books I was asked to review.

Needless to say, I over "booked" myself, and I didn't finish my list by a long shot. All told, I read 41 fiction titles, 13 holiday titles, 8 non-fiction titles, and 6 non-Christian titles.

Add in a bunch that weren't even on my list...and I did do a lot of reading...but didn't meet my challenge. And the best part for YOU...I reviewed ever book marked off on my list:-)

So check out the reviews you may have missed (most are listed alphabetically under the banner "Books I've Reviewed"...I'm still updating the list). And I'll see you in the Spring, when we challenge ourselves to read once again:-)

Happy Reading, and Merry Christmas!!

You're still awesome!! I haven't written my post yet but I didn't finish and I only had like 8 books. :)

You certainly outread me during the challenge. I started off in a reading slump and nothing appealed to me nor was I able to read as quickly as usual. Eventually I ran into some very good books and picked up steam but now I seem to be in a slump again. Apparently that goes in cycles like alot of other things in life.
