We have a winner!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the challenge this year. We randomly drew a name from those that completed the challenge and this year's winner is.....

(................drum roll please..............)

Nely from All About {n}

I was a slacker this year. Too much time knitting and not enough time reading. While I managed to get through a couple, I just didn't finish my stack. I'll try again next year. Hopefully, a lot of people whittled down the tumbling stack of books to be read and resisted the urge to add to it during the holiday shopping season.

Thanks again everyone and please be sure to stop by and check out the book club!

Checking in

It's officially the new year so I thought I would check in and see how everyone is doing down the home stretch. Did you read all five? Did the holidays throw a wrench into your reading plans? Did you cave in and buy new books?

Let me know how you are doing. Also, we will be pulling the name for the winner of the prize on the 15th so make sure you leave a link for your review .

And... coming on the 15th...the new and improved book club. We have our first selection ready to go so tell your friends, spread the word and stop by for all the info starting on the 15th. C'mon, it'll be fun!

From the Stacks Challenge 08?

Well....this blog is kind of like a shelf of favorite books that has sat too long collecting dust. Things around here have been crazy. And I lost my reading mojo for a while there. I started knitting as well and since I can't do both at the same time--or thought I couldn't--the books just sat.

And, to top it all off, the challenge didn't get started. I'm not sure who is still out there but let's start off with two things.

First off, I'm looking for one or two new reviewers for the site. My good friend posting as In Repair has been shouldering most of the reviews for quite some time. Thank goodness for that since I have been a slacker. I would like to keep things hopping here and provide a good resource for people looking for reviews and recommendations. I am also going to start adding ratings to the categories so that you can search by rating. Bear with me, I'm working it out.

Next, let's throw the From the Stacks Challenge back out there. This time I am adding an addendum for classics and favorites. So in addition to reading books that you have been meaning to read that haven't been read, books that you have been meaning to reread will count this year.

From the Stacks Challenge 08
The basic rules are the same:

If you are anything like me your stack of purchased to-be-read books is teetering over. So for this challenge we would be reading 5 books that we have already purchased, have been meaning to get to, have been sitting on the nightstand and haven't read before. No going out and buying new books. No getting sidetracked by the lure of the holiday bookstore displays.

The bonus would be that we would finally get to some of those titles (you know you picked them for a reason!) and we wouldn't be spending any extra money over the holidays.

The time frame would be Nov. 1st until Jan. 30 and there will be some small, fun prizes awarded to random participants and/or those with clever review posts.


What do you think? Sound good? Just sign up and spread the word. Please post your list of books on your blog. If you don't have a blog or just want to share, you can post them in the comments here. Thanks!

C'mon! It's fun and we got a lot of reading from the TBR pile done last year. Plus, it saves money heading into the holiday season. So, who's in?

(Trying out a new auto-link widget. Just enter your name and your blog in the form and you'll be added to the list. This way we'll have a great list of readers and readers' blogs to wander through! Don't forget to either leave your list in the comments so it's easy for everyone to see or post your list on your site. Hopefully this will run smoothly!)


(If you don't see the autolink entry form here please go to the main page and scroll down until you see it. Thanks!)

Next up--the book club will return with a new format after the holidays. Please email suggestions for future book club books to me. We'll be posting all the idea, rules, suggested books, soon.

The links are gone!

Happy New Year everyone! Hope everyone is coming along well with their challenge. I am slacking a bit but should still finish by the end. One of the books I am reviewing slowed me down a bit. I'll get into that when I do the reviews.
Hope everyone's New Year includes a good list of books. There are some great reviews here but it seems that today the autolink feature isn't working and I can't get to any of them! Ah!

Have a very happy and book-filled New Year. What are you promising yourself you'll finally read in 2008? What's the one book you've been meaning to get to that you're going to use that gift certificate on (after the challenge of course ;) )?

Guess what day it is?

Thanks for all the reviews that are starting to roll in. We are going to have a great list!

While there's still plenty of time to sign up for the challenge (in fact, you can sign up right until the end!) today is the last day to get your list in if you want to be in the first drawing.

Yup, today is prize day! So make sure that you're signed up and ready to go.

I'll post the winner's name tomorrow.

Time for reviews!

Looks like people are starting to get reviews posted. If you are interested in signing up for the From the Stacks Challenge 2007 there's still plenty of time. Go ahead and join in!

It's Back! The From the Stacks Reading Challenge 07

Last year, as a result of enjoying Carl's RIP Challenge so very much, we created the From the Stacks Reading Challenge. We had an amazing response!

So this year....it's back.

The rules are the same:

If you are anything like me your stack of purchased to-be-read books is teetering over. So for this challenge we would be reading 5 books that we have already purchased, have been meaning to get to, have been sitting on the nightstand and haven't read before. No going out and buying new books. No getting sidetracked by the lure of the holiday bookstore displays.

The bonus would be that we would finally get to some of those titles (you know you picked them for a reason!) and we wouldn't be spending any extra money over the holidays.

The time frame would be Nov. 1st until Jan. 30 and there will be some small, fun prizes awarded to random participants and/or those with clever review posts. There will be one random drawing for a prize to those who submit their list of books in the comment section by Nov. 15th but feel free to join any time. There will be another random drawing for those who submit five reviews by Jan. 30 for a small gift certificate to Amazon.


What do you think? Sound good? Just post in the comments to sign up and spread the word.

Almost there

Thanks to everyone for the well wishes with the move. We are still trudging onward (pictures are here if anyone is curious about what has kept me from reading and posting!).

I am sadly not going to finish my own challenge. Shameful!! I have read four of the five but I just feel too guilty sitting about reading when we are in the midst of all of this house craziness. I vow to finish the rest. Honest.

Look at the bright side...I will have more time to read all the wonderful reviews soon.

I'm glad that everyone has enjoyed the challenge and gotten through some of those books that just never get read. I think that we will do it again next winter and maybe we'll cook up something fun for a summer challenge.

Right now my poor sad books are in boxes except for my current read, Little, Big (P.S.), which I am enjoying even if I have to dust all the spackel and plaster dust off it every night to get to it.

Happy reading!

Still here and actually squeezing in some reading

Thanks to everyone posting reviews. Sorry I haven't been around too much lately but anyone who reads ya gotta believe knows why. The new house is crazy and stressful and we can't wait to be in full time.

I did manage to finish another book though. I read Map of Bones. I'll post all the correct info and links and a real review when the electricians aren't threatening to cut off my power here. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this one since it is far from what I generally read. I may even read another by this author. Me? Reading spy/action books? Who'd have thunk?

Anyway, just checking in to let everyone know I am still around and my sister is happily keeping an eye on things around here for a bit. Be nice. She had mice and water stress lately. ;)

Happy reading!!

I'm still here

Sorry I haven't been posting more but we are in mid-renovations so that we can move in a few weeks. Books are being boxed up (gasp!) and everything is in a general state of chaos.

Glad to see that everyone is getting through their challenge books.

If you've finished the challenge (or when you do--there's still time!!!) please post a comment on this thread so that I have a list of names for the prize drawings. And, if you've read a review that you particularly liked, or want to nominate one of your own, leave a link to that review. Prizes are fun, yes?

Posting will be a bit light until things settle down but I'm still here, really:)

History of Love - Nicole Krauss

I stuck it out and finished History of Love. I have to admit that I was much more engaged with the book towards the end. I think that this style is just not one that I connect with. Parts of the narrative reminded me of Jonathan Safran Foer's Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and I had the same trouble connecting to that story.

I enjoy the quest type structure, the searching, the journey, the intricacies and connections but sometimes I felt as if I was working too hard to enjoy the story itself. Not that it was a difficult read, but rather that I found myself trying too hard to beat the author to the conclusions, to find the connections, instead of enjoying the journey. And at the end, when the connections were made, I felt a bit let down. After all that work, I wanted something more, not necessarily clearer or more closed, but just something different.

It's a decent read but not one that I will reread or pack to move to the next house. I guess that means I have a copy available if anyone is interested. Don't let my vague and unenthused review turn you away. Lots of people really enjoyed this book much more than I did and count it among their favorites.

My rating: ***

A major award!

lamp.jpg

We have finally drawn our first winner! Congratulations to Jackie at Wren's Nest and Reading at the Nest. Jackie has won a shiny, sparkly new gift certificate to Amazon. Now that she has tackled those stacks of books she can start adding to them again! Stop on over and visit. Great blogs!

To clear up a few odds and ends--yes, I am a slacker. That said, we will be moving Decemeber's group read--The Book Thief--to January. This moves January's group read--Twilight--to February. With the From the Stacks Challenge, the holidays and our closing on the house next week, things have been a little hectic around here. So, that said, lists will be updated and things will keep rolling.

Another quick note to clear things up--you can post reviews on your From the Stacks books on your blogs. I have been trying to pop in and read them all but see the above paragraph on slacking...

The reviews that have been posted here are by Overdue Books members. If anyone is interested in joining this group book blog and posting reviews here please email me and we can set that up. You don't have to be a member to join in the group reads. Just jump in at any time. We leave the comments open indefinitely.

Congrats again to Jackie and I look forward to continuing to read all the great reviews! Thanks guys!

Almost prize time!

I am still adding names daily to the list and we are now over 115!! That is an amazing list of books we are compiling.

Please continue to let me know when you review books and I will create links on the list.

While you can join any time right up until the end, tomorrow is the last day to get in for the first prize drawing! And you know you love prizes!

So happy everyone is getting some of their TBR books finished even if the list might be growing as we check out other readers' choices. Thanks again to everyone who has joined in.

I'm about halfway through Memory Keeper's Daughter and enjoying it so far even if enjoying it means disliking some of the main characters. Looking forward to the book group discussion this month but I need to stop blogging and get reading so I finish it up!

Updates and reviews

I have been trying to keep up with the list of participants. The response has been more than I imagined.

As we start digging into the stacks and reading books for the challenge, please let me know when you review a challenge book and I will edit the list to include a link to the review. I know some people already have so if I've missed you, or forgotten to add the link, and you'd like it included please just let me know.

I am sure that I am missing a few.

You guys amaze me. I am so blown away not only by the response to this but by the list of reading choices. So many wonderful authors and titles. I'm glad I can refer back to the list for ideas.

I was also thinking it might be fun once everyone is signed up to turn it into a kind of meme where we can highlight the books we have read on the list. We'll see.

For now, thanks for joining in and happy reading!

The Incredible Growing List

I am so pleased by the response to the From The Stacks Reading Challenge. I'm glad I'm not the only one out there with a TBR stack that threatens to take over the house.

I thought I would start a running list of participants and TBR books so everyone could stop by other book blogs and ironically, add to their TBR list some of the great choices for this challenge.

If I leave anyone out just email me and let me know.

Thanks again to everyone who is joining in. You can join any time and everyone is welcome!

Reading Challenge

(If you haven't joined in talk about The Thirteenth Tale feel free to hop in any time below.)

I really enjoyed the RIP Reading Challenge and have been looking around for a new winter challenge.

In lieu of finding an already existing challenge we could try offering up one of our own.

My suggestion? From the Stacks Winter Challenge

If you are anything like me your stack of purchased to-be-read books is teetering over. So for this challenge we would be reading 5 books that we have already purchased, have been meaning to get to, have been sitting on the nightstand and haven't read before. No going out and buying new books. No getting sidetracked by the lure of the holiday bookstore displays.

The bonus would be that we would finally get to some of those titles (you know you picked them for a reason!) and we wouldn't be spending any extra money over the holidays.

The time frame would be Nov. 1st until Jan. 30 and there will be some small, fun prizes awarded to random participants and/or those with clever review posts. There will be one random drawing for a prize to those who submit their list of books in the comment section by Nov. 15th but feel free to join any time. There will be another random drawing for those who submit five reviews by Jan. 30 for a small gift certificate to Amazon.


What do you think? Sound good? Just post in the comments to sign up and spread the word.

(Clever little button still in the works)
on edit:

A button!! Maybe I will try and come up with a few others as well, but for now here's a little From The Stacks button for your blog. Anyone creative out there want to take a shot at other buttons? Help is always welcome.
