Fall into reading 2008 Wrap Up

The Fall into Reading Challenge that was hosted by Katrina of Callapidder Days ended yesterday, December 20th. This is the first challenge that I’ve signed up for and took part in and I have to say that I didn’t do too good. Here’s my original list:

Matrimony by Joshua Henkin read this 05/10/08
Somebody else’s daughter by Elizabeth Brundage read this 25/10/08
The story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski
Written in Blood by Sheila Lowe
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
Change of heart by Jodi Picoult
The time traveler’s wife by Audrey Niffenegger
Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky
Three Cups of Tea
A thousand Splendid Suns

Loosing it by Valerie Bertinelli
My Real life by Brett Hart

Did you finish reading all the books on your fall reading list? If not, why not?

Sadly I only got to read 2 books off my list: Matrimony and Somebody Else’s Daughter. The reason for not reading the books on my list was I got new books in the mail. The rest of the books were books I purchased and I had only started blogging when I joined the challenge. I was over whelmed with books.

Did you stick to your original goals or did you change your list as you went along?

I did stick with my original goals, but I should have made adjustments when new books were coming in.

What was your favorite book that you read this fall? Least favorite? Why?

My favorite books that I read this fall would be Tomato Girl, Sister Wife and We take This Man. My least favorite would be More by Austin Clarke. I had a hard time to get into so I stopped reading it. It wasn’t my thing.

Did you learn something new because of the Fall Into Reading challenge — something about reading, or yourself, or a topic you read about?

I learned that I need to stick with my list and not get distracted from it and if need be its okay to make changes to lists.

Would you like to participate in another challenge here this spring?

Yes I probably will take part. I need to be more focused on work on my goals. Next year my goal is to complete this challenge.
