It's that time again!!!!2:05 PM
I LOVE Fall, it's by far my favorite season. With Fall comes the changing colors of the leaves, the brisk cool air, the smell of stews and soups and the chance to cuddle on the couch with a blanket and a good book.
Callapider Days Fall into Reading 2007 is starting and I'm like a kid in a candy store, running around getting my books together and eager to get through my TBR pile.
So come along, if you want to participate all you need to do is grab a list of your books to be read and run on over to Callapider Days. One thing I love about this is that I get so many good ideas for other books to read, by the end of the challenge I'm usually doubling or tripling my pile with all the great additions.
I've got mine all ready and here we go:
