Fall Into Reading 2009 - The List

Fall is in the air. At least for anyone not here in Southern California. And that means it is time for the Fall into Reading challenge. (Follow the link to read more about this fun excuse to read books).

So, here are the books I am hoping to read. Okay, so it's an overly ambitious list, especially with starting up Crossfit again. But we'll see how far I can get, right?

Books left over from my Spring Reading Thing 2009 list:
Exposure by Brandilyn Collins
Double Minds by Terri Blackstock
A Date You Can't Refuse by Harley Jane Kozak
Homicide in Hardcover by Kate Carlisle

Recent Books by Favorite Authors I Still Haven't Read:
Dead Man's Puzzle by Parnell Hall
Under the Cajun Moon by Mindy Starns Clark
Ghost a la Mode by Sue Ann Jaffarian
Air Time by Hank Phillippi Ryan
The Treacherous Teddy by John J. Lamb
The Crack in the Lens by Steve Hockensmith
Offworld by Robin Parrish

New Books by Favorite Authors:
Plum Pudding Murder by Joanne Fluke
Dial H for Hitchcock by Susan Kandel
Mr. Monk in Trouble by Lee Goldberg
The Chocolate Cupid Killing by JoAnna Carl

Books Crossovered with other Reading Challenges:
7th Heaven by James Patterson
The Thin Man by Dashiell Hammett
Mrs. Pollifax on the China Station by Dorothy Gilman
Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll
Alice Through the Needle's Eye by Gilbert Adair
Dem Bone's Revenge by Kris Neri

Other Books I Want to Read:
Mama Does Time by Deborah Sharp
Kingdom Keepers II: Disney at Dawn by Ridley Pearson
Peter and the Starcatchers by Dave Barry & Ridley Pearson
The Unusual Suspects by Michael Buckley
A Fatal Grace by Louise Penny

That's 27 books, one less than I attempted in the spring. Back then, I was reading on my lunch hour, so this will be a lot less. And the kid's books I have on my list are longer than the ones I had last time, too. We'll see how I do, I guess.


Because 27 books just wasn't enough, I've come across too more I have to add.

Heat Wave by Richard Castle
NERDS by Michael Buckley

Hello from a fellow southern Californian (well...ex-). Your list is like mine - LONG. Not sure what I was thinking. Good luck with yours!

Robin M said...

Wow - what an exciting list of books. I like Terri Blackstock and Brandilyn Collins. Homicide in Hardcover is good. Will have to come back and check out all the other books. Authors I heard about but haven't read yet. My post is
up now.

As usual, you've caused me to add to my own TBR list. I didn't know about Plum Pudding Murder or The Chocolate Cupid Killing.

Offworld is on my wish list -- looks really good!

Thanks for joining in the challenge fun again, Mark!

Wow, looks like lots of great reading is in store for you this fall! Happy reading.

I only know a few of these authors - Patterson and Gilman - enjoyed them both! Good luck with the challenge!

Emily said...

The Mrs. Pollifax books are so much fun to read! I don't think I've found one yet that I didn't enjoy. Good luck with the challenge!

Hello Mark,
You have a very impressive list.
I find good books on everyone post.
I have a Terri Blackstock book I need to finish `Miracles` Perhaps that will be on my Spring list.
I have a long list, I am already having to revise.
