Fall Into Reading 2007 - Book List

It's time again for the Fall Into Reading Challenge over at Callapidder Days. I really look forward to her challenges because my reading seems to slack off between. This way, I know I'm at least getting some (hopefully) good books in every 6 months or so! I'm anxious to get started, but because I don't own a single one of these books, I'm going to have to wait for them to open up at the library. I have 3 waiting for me now so I guess I'll start with those!

Here's my fiction list:
An Arsonist's Guide to Writers' Homes in New England (Brock Clarke)
Up High in the Trees (Kiara Brinkman)
When Crickets Cry (Charles Martin)
The Other Mother (Gwendolen Gross)
Nineteen Minutes (Jodi Picoult)

Here's my non-fiction list:
The Blessing of a Skinned Knee (Wendy Mogel)
A Life's Work : On Becoming a Mother (Rachel Cusk)
The Read-Aloud Handbook (Jim Trelease)

And this time around I would like to do a read aloud book with Jake. He's to the point now where he is reading so well, the "normal" books for his age or a little too young for him. He blows right through anything we get him. So, I am going to try reading Charlotte's Web to him everyday.

Enjoy your fall reading. I'm intrigued by some of the titles like the Brock Clarke one...

I think you and Jake will enjoy reading Charlotte's Web together -- sounds like a perfect selection. Thanks for joining the challenge. Enjoy your books!

One of COlin's favorite read-alouds has been James and the Giant Peach. It actually had him rolling on the floor laughing. Of course you have to do voices and stuff, but you're great at that. I'd highly recommend it!!

The Other Mother sounds very interesting...I'm going to have to snag that from my library I think!!!
