Fall Into Reading Challenge

I have a pile of books sitting on a bench in my apartment that I have been wanting to read ALL SUMMER! Well, summer is over so I better open the books and finally get to the reading! Today I saw that there is a Fall Into Reading Challenge popping up in the blogworld so I thought I would join! Maybe it will be encouragement for me to turn the tv off (except for Thursday night when Grey's Anatomy and The Office finally returns!!!) and dive into a world beyond my own outlined on the pages of these chosen books:
*The Dive From Clausen's Pier by Ann Packer
*Suite Francaise by Viene Nemirovsky
*Grace (Eventually) by Anne Lamott
Night by Elie Wiesel
The Last Days Of Dogtown by Anita Diamant
The Audicity Of Hope by Barack Obama
Vanishing Acts by Jodi Picoult
*Books I'm in the middle of reading. I'm one of those who read multiple books at one time!

I am still trying to figure out who to vote for. Are you an Obama fan?

Oh, my--I totally have to get my hands on the new Anne Lamott. I have to commit to reading the books on my initial list first, though!!

I've read Night, and it's one I think everyone should read.

I've read Vanishing Acts and really enjoyed it. I added another Jodi Picoult book to my list for this fall -- Plain Truth. Thanks for being part of Fall into Reading. Hope you enjoy your books!

I read Night a couple of years ago. It was a very powerful book.
