October has been a good reading month.
As you know, I started Gone With The Wind earlier this month. While I don't read it every day, I have made a little bit of progress and am 152 pages into this behemoth. If you want to know what my thoughts are so far CLICK HERE. I will say that if I had the option, I would have prefered to read this with a book buddy.
While I have added GWTW to my Goodreads list, I have not added any of the Arcane Society and Rainshadow Island series books I've been devouring to the list. Why? Because I decided that I would only add new books to my Goodreads Challenge otherwise I would be forever adding and updating progress on the numerous books I reread every month. I am a huge rereader, and love to go back into the worlds, with characters I enjoy - who have fun adventures. For some reason October has been the month of the Jayne Ann Krentz (aka Amanda Quick and Jayne Castle) marathon. I find these books to be quick, fast paced and fun - especially the books set on Harmony as I adore those fuzzy little dust bunnies!
Then there is this months book purchase extravaganza. Yes, I spent waaay too much money at Book Depository this month. I'm still waiting for about 10 books to come in the mail - yes, 10! - and have already received another 13 in the post since the start of the month (I hadn't counted until now!), as well as bought a further 4 books at my local Big W (only place to buy new books in town), and 6 used books.
OMG, I am a complete and total book tart!
Please let me know in the comments what your most extravagant book month was (so I don't feel like it's only me who does this!) ;-D
Until next time,
