Challenges Completed

  • Zombie Reading Challenge — 24 awesome horror filled books for me to enjoy.  I already have my eyes on some zombie books for next year’s challenge.


Pretty good month for reading.  I started out with the FrightFall Readathon and the goal of finishing my zombie challenge.  I got through five books during the readathon.  Decent showing for not a huge amount of reading.  And within the next week I had finished my zombie challenge. I also joined a book club and we had our first meeting (Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks).  Because of the holidays and traveling, we won’t be having our next meeting until December.  I’m really looking forward to it.  For next month I want to knock out my Shakespeare challenge and Fantasy challenge.  I plan on loading my iPad with reads for the Thanksgiving traveling.  Hopefully I can have tons to read and only have to lug one physical book (for take-off and landings).  Plans plans plans…

Next Month’s TBR — iPad reads month
