"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."
--Author Christopher Benson

JUST FOR FUN - SEPTEMBER 2011

Below is the JUST FOR FUN Form for September!!

Remember the form must be filled out no later than 
October 3, 2011 (3-day grace period)
to qualify for the challenge.

2011 JUST FOR FUN READING CHALLENGE PAGE
 in the right sidebar to find the form 
anytime throughout the month.

Here are just a sample of the books people read 
JUST FOR FUN in August.

After reading your comments in August I have learned that most of you are like me and your To-Be-Read stacks aren't shrinking but growing.  
That tells me that I will have to host this challenge again next year!!
If you have any suggestions please email me at dollycas79@gmail.com or leave a comment below.

One suggestion I have had is to set up a group on Goodreads for this group and I am looking into that at this time.  It would start as public group so everyone could join and then after the first month would become a restricted group.  I would love to hear your thoughts on this suggestion.

Until next month
HAPPY READING!!!

So I just submitted as I don't see any of the books I read listed. I could have sworn I filled in the form but maybe just thought so. Anyhoo I got it just in time yay.

There must be another "Just for Fun" next year, otherwise some of my future favorite books will be crowded out for years.

Thank you so much for thinking of this.

I am a huge D. Silva fan. All his books are quite good.
