Many thanks to Katrina for the Fall Into Reading Challenge. I did really well with this one although I’m pretty sure my original list looks nothing like this finished list does.

I really enjoyed this challenge mainly because I was able to change the list to what I was actually getting read. I never did get to the last two on this list although I had every intention to so I guess I didn’t quite complete it. The ones from the original list which I didn’t read but will be this year were:
Red Dog, Red Dog-Patrick Lane
Little Women-Louisa May Alcott
Promise the Moon-Elizabeth Joy Arnold
First Daughter-Eric Van Lustbader
Wuthering Heights-Emily Bronte
A Recipe for Bees-Gail Anderson-Dargatz
The Book Thief-Markus Zusak
Babylon Rolling-Amanda Boyden
The Retreat-David Bergen
The Wased Vigil-Nadeem Aslam
So, onto 2009 and more challenges. I’m starting out with very good intentions and am going to succeed at them all!
Wow! Congratulations on finishing the challenge. You sure did a lot of reading.
Thanks Kathy. I didn’t realize I had read that much until I wrote it all down.
wow! great job!
I joined this challenge but didnt complete it.
Naida, I was a few short of completing it and I had changed a lot but I still managed to get a lot of books read for it.
Great job! You should be proud of yourself!
