MONTHLY WRAP-UP: HELLO, OCTOBER!

June 3 - rearranged spaces - 1

Wow!  The months are ticking by, and we just said goodbye to September.  My total books read dropped by one from last month’s, but everything I read engaged me.  It was hard to pick just one favorite.

What did your month look like?  Let’s link up to Kathryn’s Book Date so we can visit others.

Here are my books, with the titles linked to my reviews.

MONTHLY WRAP-UP: GOODBYE TO SEPTEMBER!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hello, and welcome to October!  Here’s hoping that we all have a great reading month.  September didn’t start picking up for me until well into the month, so my totals were not as good as last month.

I did have some enjoyable reads, however; click on the titles to read my reviews.

Check in at Kathryn’s The Book Date to see others’ wrap-up posts.
