Did you finish reading all the books on your fall reading list? If not, why not?
No, I fell into a reading slump and I lost interest in reading some of them. I read 41 total books.

Did you stick to your original goals or did you change your list as you went along?
I changed my list as I went along.

What was your favorite book that you read this fall? Least favorite? Why?
My favorites include The Silent Order by Melanie Dobson and Emily of Deep Valley by Maud Hart Lovelace. My least favorites were Gingerbread Cookie Murder by Joanne Fluke and Dark Road to Dareeling by Deanna Raybourn.

Did you discover a new author or genre this fall? Did you love them? Not love them?
Melanie Dobson was a new author for me and I loved her book.

Did you learn something new because of Fall Into Reading 2010 – something about reading, about yourself, or about a topic you read about?
I confirmed that novellas are not my favorite. I like more development in the story.

What was your favorite thing about the challenge?
I love the weekly questions even though I did not participate in all of them.


Thank you Katrina at Callapidder Days.

Wow! 41 AND you were in a reading slump. And to think I was happy completing 7 books. :) You have several on your list that are on my TBR list. A Memory Between Us, While We're Far Apart, Dark Road to Darjeeling, The Lightkeeper's Bride, The House of Malcolm Street. Any I should move to the top of my list or remove from it alltogether? I know you didn't like Darjeeling. Any particular reason?
