Fall Into Reading

I've been really lackadaisical when it comes to keeping track of the books I'm reading, so I've decided to participate in Katrina's Fall Into Reading challenge.

The fall months for me are usually incredibly busy, so I've decided to narrow my list of must-read books to two:

1) "Brideshead Revisited," by Evelyn Waugh; and

2) "The Complete Father Brown Stories," by G.K. Chesterton.

The reason I stopped at two is because the Father Brown collection is 797 pages. The good news is that I'm likely to get through most, if not all, of it because they're a collection of short stories.

If I finish both of those books, and there's still plenty of time before the end of the challenge (Dec. 20), I'll add a third book:

3) "Spoken From the Heart" by Laura Bush.

What are you reading this fall?

For more information about the reading challenge, visit Katrina at Callapidder Days. The challenge starts today (Sept. 22) and runs through Dec. 20.

Looks good! Though I've read some Father Brown, I like the idea of reading the entire collection.

Enjoy your fall reading!

Haven't heard of the first two, but will add them to my list of friend's suggested books.

I'm reading a homeschool teaching approach book, that is pretty thick and I like to read bits and pieces now and then - Heart of Wisdom. And I'm reading "In God We Trust" by Ken Ham and also, Max Anders' "30 Days to Understanding the Bible."

I need to get a good fiction, pleasure book, in there for fun! ;)

Keep us posted!

Oh, I "bought" (it was a free download) "Little Women" from amazon for R2's kindle app.
