Re: What did you read in OCTOBER?

  • The Raven Boys
    The Dream Thieves
    Blue Lily, Lily Blue...twice
    Never Let Me Go
    The Taming of the Shrew
    Make It Right - Megan Erickson

    I'm at 40 books for the year. I'm aiming for 52, but I don't know if I can do 6 each month with all the writing I need to do. Plus I'm mad at GR because I can't count my re-reads toward my yearly challenge unless I change the date read and I don't want to do that. Ho hum.

    I hit my goal of 50 books on October 25. I don't plan to increase my goal, but I will be interested to see how many more I can read for the year.

    Can you find another edition? I think I did that with Dream Thieves since I've read it twice this year. Even if it's an audio edition or a foreign language edition, it lets you keep an accurate count.
