October Wrap Up

This is one of my favorite times of the year! I love the holiday season and the weather that comes with it! October has been a better reading month for me than September, although I add more to my to-be-read pile than whittling it down! I do think that might be a common blogger issue!

One disappointing thing for me this month was that I didn't participate in the 24 Hour Read-a-Thon. I just couldn't commit with having 3 children at home (2 of them being ages 3 and 5) and not to mention, we just had a really busy weekend that weekend! I did manage to read...wait for it....a whole 10 pages during the Read-a-Thon. Yes, I'm embarrassed!

My favorite feature of October in terms of books is that I read what I believe to be the best book of 2009. If you've not read "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett, you are missing out!!! It should be the very next book you read!!!

Well, here's the wrap up! Be sure to read to the end for a special announcement!
