October '09 Recap


October was a great month for me. Kiddo continues to recover from his surgery and he's back to playing ice hockey three times a week - YAY! I cohosted the Dueling Monsters Read-A-Long with Fizzy Thoughts and we both had a blast with it. I went to a blogger awards ceremony for Maryland bloggers. And best of all, I got to participate in a book tour for a series of books I've been reading since the 1990s; you can check it out here and I'll be updating my blog with even more pictures as soon as I can.

This was a decent month for reading as well ...

Books - 7
(1,765 pages)
Audio Books - 1 (32 hours)
  • Knife of Dreams (32 hours) - I've already read this book and listened to it previously but I still enjoyed it this time around

Other Reviews - 2
Other Stats
  • No Mom & Son Book Club this month. :(
  • My TBR list gained 9 titles this month and Kiddo's gained 1.

My birthday is coming up in just a few days and that means it is almost time for my annual blogging recap! I'm busily counting up totals - pages read, books added to my TBR list, challenges completed, etc. - so I can share them all with you later this week. I can't believe how fast this year as flown by ...

Glad to hear Kiddo is doing well. That's great news. And for all that went on during the month, you still managed to get a lot of reading done. Congrats!
