Taking Stock - October - 2017

Yikes! October slipped by wa-ay too quickly! Good thing I got ahead on my Goodreads goal back in the summer because my book-a-day really took a hit this month!

Total posts this month: 35
Total books read this month: 18(!)
Total books read this year: 332

Audio: 5/ 77
Debut: 0/22
Picture Book: 4/118

The Good: I attended Bookfest@Bankstreet this past Saturday. The school year is already flying right by. I cannot believe two months are in the books already!

The Bad: Well, I did get slammed a bit at work. I am teaching new classes, which is good; but the work required in launching something new coupled with the grading made for less time and energy to read.

315. This is a Good Story by Adam Lehrhaupt (10/1)
