October 2013 Wrap-Up

Here's a summary of my book-related activity for October. I did Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon, and just overall got a lot of reading done! I'm motivated by how close to the end of the year it is, and how far I still am from completing my challenges! So I'm at the point where I'm making piles of books based on completing my challenges, and setting lots of goals each month. It's only increased my husband's perception of me as a completely crazy person.

Books I read (linked to the reviews)

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury (TBR pile)
The Escape (Animorphs #15) by K.A. Applegate (TBR pile)
