I participated in this challenge last year and thoroughly enjoyed it, not only the reading but seeing all the different reading lists by the participants! If you aren’t familiar with it and want to check it out, stop by Katrina’s place and get all the info in this post. You can see all the other many participants and find their reading lists too. Katrina is giving away a prize at the end as well as doing some book give aways during the week. Sign up by Wednesday so you can be included!
Here’s my list for this challenge:

Fiction…….which is mostly what I read
The Prodigal by Beverly Lewis
Big Stone Gap by Adriana Trigiani
My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult
Dear John by Nicholas Sparks
The Memory Keeper’s Daughter by Kim Edwards
Peace Like a River by Leif Enger
Shepherd’s Abiding by Jan Karon, for Christmas time!

I’m including this nonfiction book…..we’re using it on Wednesday nights at church. I’m hoping that putting it on my list will help motivate me to finish it.
Beyond Jabez by Bruce Wilkinson

    I’ve read Memory Keeper’s Daughter and the Prodigal and really liked both. I am seeing Peace LIke a River on so many lists. You’ll have to let us know what you thought.

    I’ve read Memory Keepers Daughter, The Prodigal, and Shepherd’s Abiding. I am reading Peace Like a River. It will be fun to read your reviews. I enjoy these challenges – it gets me motivated!

    I enjoyed The Memory Keeper’s Daughter–and Shepherd’s Abiding and The Prodigal. I haven’t read the others on your list. Be sure and let us know if you enjoy them or not.

    Happy Fall reading to you!

    I have seen the Beyond Jabez book around on lists. Let us know what you think of it. I am hoping that all this reading around blogland will create some book reviews so we can add to our lists.

    I think I read Dear John. I love Nicholas Sparks and if it is the book I am thinking of you will like it.

    I am also a fan of Bob Greene. I need him to live next door to me. He got in Oprah’s face and did wonders for her.

    I have read Beyond Jabez but don’t remember it. I did not get much out of it at the time. I think I need to read it again to see if it is different for me on the second reading. 🙂

    I’ve read almost all of those on your list, and I think you’ll enjoy them all. I know you’ll add more to your list than this though 🙂

    Your list’s looking great, Gail!

    The Memory Keeper’s Daughter is on my list, too. I’ve been encountering Peace Like A River a lot. Let us know what you think about it when you’re done.

    Enjoy your Fall Reading! 🙂

    Guess what…I actually made myself say “no” to this one…hard to believe, huh?

    Sounds like you’ve got a good list going there. But I agree with Stacy…I bet you’ll get a lot more read than that!

  12. Debi Says:

    I’ve got The Memory Keeper’s Daughter on my Fall Reading List too :-). I’ve read My Sister’s Keeper – it’s really good.

    Looks good, Gail! I read My Sister’s Keeper last fall and enjoyed it. And I keep seeing Peace Like a River popping up on lists. Thanks for being part of the challenge. Enjoy your fall reading!

  15. Southern Girl Says:

    Of those, I’ve read Shepherd’s Abiding, Big Stone Gap, and Peace Like a River. Loved them all, but I ADORED Peace Like a River. That book won my Best of 2006 award. 😉
