Fall into reading...

Fall is almost here! I love Fall. Halloween and pumpkin and back to school supplies. And with Fall comes the Fall Into Reading Challenge!

September 22nd through December 20th, make a book list and read! I didn't do so well at the Summer Reading Challenge once I got stuck on Blonde, but this weekend I'm getting rid of it no matter what and it will be time for a fresh start. My booklist will be...

September...
Little Women - Louisa May Alcott
The Pilgrim of Hate - Ellis Peters
October...
Daisy Miller - Henry James
Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde - Robert Louis Stevenson
The Woman in White - Wilkie Collins
The Alienist - Caleb Carr
The Halloween Tree - Ray Bradbury
November...
Adolphe - Benjamin Constant
The Picture of Dorien Gray - Oscar Wilde
Knocked Out By My Nunga-Nungas - Louise Rennison
The Age of Innocence - Edith Wharton
American Gods - Neil Gaimon
December...
The Poisonwood Bible - Barbara Kingsolver
The Scarlett Pimpernel - Baroness Emmuska Orczy
An Excellent Mystery - Ellis Peters

Mostly I will be trying to finish up a few challenges before the end of the year!

Little Women is one of my most favorite books on this planet. It is fun to read alongside the movie. I hope you enjoy it!

Great list! Little Women, The Woman in White, and The Poisonwood Bible are some of my favorites.

That looks like a great list :-) I have the Poison wood bible on my eventual to be read list. Have fun reading.

Looks good -- lots of variety! I read The Picture of Dorian Gray in high school and I think I was the only one in my class who liked it. I'm probably due to re-visit it before long.

Thanks for being part of Fall Into Reading '08!
