Wow, I can't believe it's already November. The months are flying by, and sometimes it seems as though I don't have time to stop and catch my breath.
Thankfully, I've had time to read. In October, I read 15 books, putting me at 105 for the year!! This means I've met my goal of reading 100 books in 2009.
Here's my list for the month (click the links to read my reviews):

*counts toward the Everything Austen Challenge
**counts toward the War Through the Generations Challenge
As for my challenge progress, I've completed 2/6 for the Everything Austen Challenge and 24 books for the War Through the Generations Challenge. I plan to read at least a few more WWII books by the end of the year, as well as complete the Everything Austen Challenge. Wish me luck! (It's a good thing I have the entire week of Thanksgiving off from work.)
So tell, me...how many books did you read last month? Are you meeting all your reading goals?
