Here is how the Fall Into Reading 2007 challenge will work:
Who: Fall Into Reading 2007 is open to anyone and everyone! As long as you can read, you can participate!
What: Fall Into Reading 2007 is a casual, low-pressure challenge. The point is simply to provide motivation to read, and to provide an opportunity for all of us to set goals when it comes to our personal (or family) reading. As a participant, all you'll have to do is make a list of books you'd like to read (or books you'd like to finish!) this fall. We'll share our goals with each other, and then share our experience and results when the challenge is over.
When: Yes, you guessed it. Fall Into Reading 2007 will take place throughout the fall of 2007. The official dates are September 23rd through December 21st.
Where: Here, and on particpants' blogs all over the blogosphere. Go to Callapidder's Mr. Linky and submit a link to your own Fall Into Reading 2007 blog post. Share your goals and list of books in your post, and include a link back to the Callapidder's post that contains the Mr. Linky.
Why: Because reading is a wonderful thing, and it's great share the love of reading with as many people as possible. This challenge gives motivation to read books we may have been "meaning to read" or to finish books that we got half-way through and then abandoned. Also use this challenge as an opportunity to incorporate some variety into your reading.
How: Again go to Callapidder's Mr. Linky and submit a link to your own Fall Into Reading 2007 blog post. Share your goals and list of books in your post, and include a link back to the Callapidder's post that contains the Mr. Linky.
