Fall Into Reading Wrap-Up

I'm a little late posting, it has been a busy, bittersweet December! But I am ready to wrap up Fall Into Reading hosted by Katrina at Callapidder Days. You can see all the wrap-up posts if you click on the button.

Katrina asked a few questions ...
Did you finish reading all the books on your fall reading list? If not, why not? No, I got 6 of the 8 done so 75%, C! Why not? Just too many books in the world - my reading eyes are always bigger than my reading stomache!
Did you stick to your original goals or did you change your list as you went along?
I stuck with my list for challenge purposes. I did read other books but I didn't reinvent my list every week like I did in the Spring!
What was your favorite book that you read this spring? Least favorite? Why?
My favorite was the Guernsey book, I really wanted to run away and live with those people. My least favorite was The Brothers Boswell, it just didn't live up to my expectations.
Did you discover a new author or genre this fall? Did you love them? Not love them?
With the exception of Dan Brown, these were all new authors for me. I loved a couple of them!
Did you learn something new because of Fall Into Reading 2009 – something about reading, about yourself, or about a topic you read about?
I had never read a book set in Egypt before I read The Heretic Queen so I did learn a little bit about Egyptian history.
What was your favorite thing about the challenge?
My favorite thing is seeing what everybody else is reading and finding new books. I didn't do nearly as much visiting as I wanted. I had the goal of visiting every sign up post but didn't make it. With the reviews I just clicked on ones that caught my eye - there were too many to even think about trying to read them all!

Big THANK YOU to Katrina for hosting! The time you put in to making this a fun event for all of us is much appreciated.

I laughed when I read that your reading eyes are bigger than your reading stomach. I can so relate to that. I'd say you did well with the challenge.
