Fall Into Reading 2012

Well, today is the first day of fall, which means it is time for Callapidder Day's 2012 Fall Into Reading.  Follow the link to read all about it and sign up yourself.

My list is very short, at least right now.  There are only 11 books on it, and that includes several books that are mostly pictures.  I guess I'll be adding to the list as I go along.  But for now, here is what I am starting with.

Current Read:
Frozen Heat by Richard Castle (just over a third of the way through this one)

Books held over from 2012 Spring Reading Thing:
None!!!! I love this, and I am hoping to repeat it, although I am probably going to have no problems if I keep my list this short.

Books on my Original to be read list:
Running Ransom Road by Caleb Daniloff
Skating Around the Law by Joelle Charbonneau
Poster Art of the Disney Parks by Daniel Handke and Vanessa Hunt
Disneyland Through the Decades by Jeff Kurtti
Kingdom Keepers V by Ridley Pearson
Peter and the Sword of Mercy by Ridley Pearson and Dave Barry
The Chocolate Moose Motive by JoAnna Carl
The Twelve Clues of Christmas by Rhys Bowen
Keeper of the Lost Cities by Shannon Messenger
The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan

Books Added to my Original List:

I am so glad that you are reading Mark of Athena. I've enjoyed the other books in that series and didn't realize that Rick Rioden had a new one coming out. That one is definitely going on my list as well.
Look forward to you reviews.

Carrie said...

HA! I have to grin. Your the first person I've seen who reads the Richard Castle books. What is it, like, three days until the season premier? Yes, I am sort of waiting. :D

Disneyland Through the Decades looks REALLY fun to. I'll have to look for that one!

Rinn said...

Good luck with the challenge! I'm taking part too =) I'm interested to see what you make of the Mark of Athena, I really enjoyed Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series.

Katrina said...

This IS short for you. :) So excited to see no holdovers from spring! I really need to pick up another JoAnna Carl book... and some chocolate to go along with it.

Thanks for joining the challenge. Looking forward to seeing how many books you end up reading!

Holly, I'm very glad I could help add to your list. :)

Carrie, I recap Castle (and Once Upon a Time) at if you are interested. I can't wait until both of the premier. I take it you are another DisNerd?

Rinn, I've been enjoying the Heros of Olympus series. It's a fun expansion of the Percy Jackson universe, so if you liked Percy, give them a try.

Katrina, I was aiming for 12 books, and I'm at 11, with several of them being large picture books with little actual reading. But I just wasn't finding more that I knew I'd have to read, so I'll just expand the list. That's one thing I love about your reading lists, I have the freedom to do that as I so desire.

Disneyland through the decades sounds like a fun read. Enjoy getting through your list.

Mark Baker said...

Thanks Susanne. I'm really looking forward to that book.

Cassandra said...

Congrats on having no books rolled over from the spring challenge! Enjoy reading through your list!
