I have managed this month to cut down the number of blog posts I've published. - only 45 in the 31 days compared with the 70 in the month of September.
I've actually read and reviewed 11 books this month and am well on schedule to finish most of my reading challenges for the year. I've read 107 books for the year, already more than in 2009 when I read 104, and I should make it to 125.
I highly recommend THE NIGHT OF THE MI'RAJ by Zoe Ferraris which I finished reading this week. It's alternative title is FINDING NOUF. I read that as title #17 in the 2010 Global Reading Reading Challenge and I have 4 more to go for that challenge.
After I've done that I have to focus on getting a few more books read for the Canadian Reading Challenge, where I've only read 3 so far, although I actually have until the middle of next year to make it to 13.
