I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Fall into Reading

Fall into Reading
September 22 - December 21

hosted by Katrina at Callapidder Days

Sign ups go live on the 22nd. You can read about the challenge here, or here, but "Essentially, Fall Into Reading 2012 is a fun, low-pressure reading challenge open to anyone and everyone. It will take place September 22nd-December 21st (which, as you may have guessed, lines up with the fall of 2012)." The only requirement is a list of book you'd like to read this fall.

I have a stack of print books and a list of ebooks that have been on my Monday post for what seems like for months. I'd like to get those finished and crossed off the list or officially marked DNF and crossed off the list!

You've got quite a list...just like me. Here's hoping we both get through all our books!

Thanks Bev. I'm hoping to get eight of them read. I may read 20+ books but I'm hoping for eight off the list!
