The 2010 edition of the Fall Into Reading Challenge, hosted by Katrina at Callapidder Days, ended with the season, on December 20th. Once again, I read a dozen books during the challenge. Also once again, most of the books I read weren't on my list of possible reads when I started the challenge. But that's OK – I had fun, discovered a few new authors, revisited several old favorites, and polished off a number of books that had been on my TBR list for decades.
So I'm declaring this another challenge successfully completed. The one thing I haven't been too successful at is writing reviews of the books I read. Sorry about that. I still intend to post a few more of those in the next few days, and I'll add links as I do it.
Here's my list of books read, with links to the reviews that do exist:
- Cards on the Table. Agatha Christie
- The House Next Door. Anne Rivers Siddons
- Book of Shadows. Alexandra Sokoloff
- Animal Farm. George Orwell
- The Dark Half. Stephen King
- After Claude. Iris Owens
- The Vanishing of Katharina Linden. Helen Grant
- We Have Always Lived in the Castle. Shirley Jackson
- The Distant Hours. Kate Morton
- Juliet. Anne Fortier
- The Weird Sisters. Eleanor Brown
- The Thirty-Nine Steps. John Buchan
Congratulations. I finished the challenge on November 29. I had 19 books on my list and one audio book I listened to.ReplyDelete
After I read a post a while back when you mentioned "Cards on the Table" I bought it to read. And now after your comment today I need to get it off my book shelf and read it.
Happy Reading in 2011.
Hi Joy, just popping in to wish you and your family a Happy New Year. May 2011 be filled with good books, good friends, good health and much happiness.ReplyDelete
Congrats on completing your challenge. I'll have to check out that Agatha book - one I haven't read yet so I'm not that familiar with the character. More of a Miss Marple and Poirot fan.
