Callapidder Days is sponsoring her annual Fall Into Reading challenge. I enjoyed the Spring Reading challenge, so I thought I'd participate in this challenge as well. Because I'm in graduate school and working full time (not to mention raising two kids), I'm keeping my list reasonable. I hope to finish these books and maybe a couple more by the end of the challenge (December 20th). This is a no pressure challenge and it's fun to see what the other participants are reading. You can challenge yourself to a few books or a dozen--it doesn't matter. I'm always looking for books to add to my "To Be Read" pile (like it's not big enough already). I'll post my reviews of the books as I finish them and post a summary in December. Why don't you join the challenge, too? Just click on this link.
1. World Without End by Ken Follett: After reading The Pillars of the Earth for the Spring Reading challenge, I had to pick the sequel for this challenge. It takes place in the same town as Pillars, but 200 years later. Follett is a master writer who really does his historical research. This book is a little over 1000 pages, so I think it should count as 3 entries. But, the way Follett writes, I won't be able to put it down.
4. Her Mother's Hope by Francine Rivers: I really love Francine Rivers' other books, especially Redeeming Love, so I'm looking forward to this book. It has great reviews and is the first of a two part series. Francine Rivers is one of the best out there for telling great stories with captivating characters. I'm sure this book will not disappoint.
Well, that's it. A short list, but I'll be spending most of my time reading books for my master's classes. Believe me, they're not near as exciting.
I hope you'll join the challenge. Tell your friends. The more, the merrier.
