October 2012 Wrap-Up

Here's a summary of my book-related activity for October. Thanks to the read-a-thon, and the fact that I exercised remarkable self-control (one time I was in a book store, and I only bought a magazine!), my to read pile decreased by (slightly) more than in any month since I started The Towering Pile! Hooray! What a way to celebrate my first year of book blogging!

Books I read (linked to the reviews)

The Woman in Black: A Ghost Story by Susan Hill (library)
The Capture (Animorphs #6) by K.A. Applegate (TBR pile)
James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl (TBR pile)
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins (TBR pile)
Dr. Horrible, and Other Horrible Stories by Zack Whedon (TBR pile)
The Stranger (Animorphs #7) by K.A. Applegate (TBR pile)
Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler (TBR pile)
'Salem's Lot by Stephen King (new book)
Lord of the Flies by William Golding (library) (DNF)

Only 4! And one of these was actually ordered last month, and just arrived this month.

Progress on challenges

The Capture was my October book for the Read Your OWN Library! Challenge.

The Art of Egypt: The Time of the Pharaohs was my October Random Read. Unfortunately, I didn't have time to read it.

I completed the following letters for the 2012 A-Z Book Challenge: none (only two left!)

I read 2 books for the Mount TBR Reading Challenge.

I read 0 books for the 2012 Anne Rice Challenge. (I finished The Witching Hour, though. Wow, that book is long!)

Operation: TBR Reduction: I added 4 books to my to read list and removed 7, so my pile decreased by 3 this month!
