Fall Reading Challenge

So today I decided to join a fall reading challenge found at Katrina's Blog. I've never done one of these before, but since I read a LOT it should be a breeze. Last night I just finished the autobiography by Denise Jackson (she's the wife of country music star, Alan Jackson) called, "It's All About Him".
The rest of the books I plan to read are:
The Rest of God-Mark Buchanan
See You in a Hundred Years-Logan Ward
Split Ends-Kristin Billerbeck
Chasing Fireflies-Charles Martin(I LOVE HIS BOOKS!!!)
Then I took some titles from BooMama that sounded interesting and ordered these from the library(thanks Christie:) :
Peace Like a River-Leif Enger
The Debt-Angela Hunt
There Is No Me Without You-Melissa Faye Green(Brandi, have you read this???)
So, that is my list, although there will probably be more...I average about two books a week if they are easy reads, but I thought this would be a good start....so join me and read some books!
Love,
Jackie Sue
P.S.Had a wonderful time on the women's retreat this weekend. Things went well. Thanks for your prayers!

i wish i enjoyed reading as much as you and some other moms i know. i don't. so, you just need to tell me which of these are "must reads". i still probably won't read them, but atleast i'll know which ones i should.
also, you did a great job at the women's retreat! i also loved the time we had to talk in the car. i miss hanging out with old ladies :)

Looks like a good list! Lots of participants are reading Peace Like a River this time around... I'll be curious to see everyone's thoughts. Thanks for being part of Fall into Reading!

Sounds like a good list of books! I need to get myself busy with more reading!! I didn't even recognize most of those authors! Do you think OCLS will wonder if "I" order two of everything!? :)

Ok, yeah! I haven't read ANY of those books! That new list makes me super excited, although now that I'm running, it's a bit harder to read while I work out!

What are you reading first? I'd love to read ones at the same time as you. . .I think I may start with "There's no me without you" b/c I have heard it is FABULOUS!

Love you,
Bran
