Wow, hard to believe that Fall is behind us.  Guess that means it is time for the Fall into Reading 2010 Wrap Up post.  So let's get to it.

Thoughts:

I really did think I had a list that was way too long.  Granted, I didn't finish like I did in the Spring, but I'm happy with the number of books I did get read.  Okay, so it helped that a lot of them were aimed at kids and young adults, but I enjoyed many of those books and hope to include more kids' books in my reading in 2011.

I really need to read more books for the Church library since I've said I would.  The fact that we are now three months later and I haven't done that is rather embarrassing.  Heck, I don't even have a name for the book yet.

As usual, the non-fiction on my reading list got pushed to the back burner.  Oh well.

Look for any of these books I don't read in the next three months to appear on my list for Spring 11.

That's a pretty impressive list! It seems most people have long lists for this challenge. I think I only had 6 books! And I still didn't read them all, since other, less non-fictiony books, came along.

Back in the Spring, I only had about 12 books on my list so I'd be sure to get through them. :) Yes, I added other books near the end.

Sounds like you got quite a lot read, however, if you were reading books not on your original list.

I think you did a great job! And I love reading good kids/young adult books. Sometimes, they're more engaging than "grown-up" books.

Thanks for being part of the challenge! Hope you have a great 2011!

Thanks for hosting again.

Expect lots more kids books out of me this year. At least that's the plan right now.
