October in Review

Wow, I cannot believe we're less than 2 months away from Christmas!  More importantly, we're less than a month away from my birthday!  :o)  I still get excited about my birthday, even though my age is steadily creeping up higher and higher each year....hmmm....

Anyway, October was a great book month for me.  So good, in fact, that I read more books in October than I have ever read!  Wow...19 books total....I'm still amazed!  :o)  Here's a list of everything I read (most of these were read during Dewey's 24-hour Read-a-thon on October 9th):

As a result of my reading spree, I managed to complete two reading challenges during October:  the 100+ Book Reading Challenge (at least 100 books read in 2010), and the Countdown 2010 Challenge (55 books published between 2001 and 2010).  This was the first time I've managed to complete a major challenge, and not just one, but two!  Woohoo!  Now, I can sort of relax for the rest of the year, and read a few more books for leisure's sake.  ;o)

What about you?  Read any good books in October?


  1. Look at you! That's awesome, Christy -- congrats! :)


  2. Thanks, Lori! Even though a lot of them were short books, I still feel like I had a major accomplishment. Who knows when I'll be able to get that many read again?!? :o)


I love your comments!! They make me happier than cold sweet tea on a hot summer day! :o)
