Oh November, where did you go? How can it be December 3rd already?
In looking back over the month, I see I didn’t put a big dent in the Books Read pile. That makes me a little sad, I really had hoped to read more than four books. I was so certain I would finish up 50 by the end of the year (although the goal I set for myself on December 31, 2008 was 45) but as of today I have only finished 44 (but should have #45 done by the end of the week). Can I really finish up five books before December 31st? Guess this means I might have to save Under the Dome for either book #51, or the new year, whichever comes first.
While I would have liked to have a better reading record, I am happy with catching up on my reviews. I also hit a milestone with my 100th blog post!
My challenges are sort of stalled, and think I need to officially realize that I will not be participating in the Back to School Challenge hosted by Five Borough Book Review. I will be saving up the books I wanted to read for next year because I really loved the idea of school reading list books.
All the holiday excitement, prep, planning and outings might put a crimp in reading and blogging, unless I take a few extra pieces of Peppermint Bark to sustain me for some late nights here. But, that’s OK. If I don’t hit 50 books, no big deal – there is always next year!
How about you? How was your reading month, and how is your last month of 09 looking?
