Fall Into Reading Challenge

I am really excited about this reading challenge! What a great way to organize the books I choose to fill my mind with.

Here are a few books on my reading list that come to mind:

1. A Man Called Moses by Bill Gallaher
A novel about Wellington Delaney Moses, who was a blacksmith in Barkerville BC.

2. The Edible Container Garden by Michael Guerra
Fairly self explanitory title I think.  Need to get prepared for next year.

3.The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows
My mother in law has recommended it to me and it seem quite popular so I thought i might give it a go.

4.The Busy Mom's Guide to Bible Study by Lisa Welchel
I am really drawn in by the description of this book:

"Not only is this plan doable, it's satisfying. As a busy mom, you give of yourself all day long - often with no way to refresh and replenish the cravings of your own soul. But this simple three-month, come-along-beside-you guide will take you deep into the Word, nourishing your heart and soul. And in just three months, you will be a changed woman - changed by the power of God's word in you."

5. Crocheting For Dummies by Susan Brittain and Karen Manthey
I really want to learn how to crochet so I can make cute stuffed animals :)

6. Shepherding a Child's Heart by Tedd Tripp
 Truthfully the title intrigues me.

7. Same Kind of Different as Me by Ron Hall, Denver Moore & Lynn Vincent
I saw this on the Roger's Family Blog book list and once again am intrigued by the title. 

I will probably add more as I go, I just haven't planned my reading schedule too far ahead yet I suppose :)

Come join the challenge!  Click on the picture at the top of my post for more info!

I want to read a book a week. You can see my list on my blog.

You'll have to tell me what you think of Same Kind of Different As Me. I am going to the library to get it today.

I noticed you had Shepherding A Child's Heart on your list. That is one I have heard lots about as well. Now you've got me thinking I might need to add that one. =)

Hope you have fun as you begin your Fall reading!

"The Edible Container Garden" - sounds very interesting. And how many times have I seen the "Potato" book? I MUST read that book myself. It has to be good as much publicity as it gets. Your list looks great. Have fun!

Looks like a great list, Sarah! I really enjoyed Guernsey Literary..., even though it's not the type of book I usually read. Good luck with the crocheting! My mom taught me when I was little, and though I haven't crocheted much during the last few years, it's still nice to have that skill.

Thanks for being part of Fall Into Reading '09!

I love how you give a little description of the books. You make them all sound appealing! I did read Same Kind of Different as Me and liked it so much I bought a couple copies for gifts. Hope you enjoy it, too :) Happy, happy reading.

Great list! I have The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society on my list too. Good luck with the challenge!

I like your list, esp. `The Busy Mom's Guide to Bible Study`.
`Crocheting for Dummies` looks good as well. I crochet afghans, but I only know the granny square, and I don't know how to join them. So I crochet one big `Granny Square`. LOL
Enjoy Crocheting & reading!
