October has been, by far, my best reading month ever. I've been trying real hard to get in some books so I can complete the 100+ Challenge. I've read 75 books this year so do you all think I can read 25 books in the next two months?? Eek!

64. The Little Prince - Antoine de Saint-Exupery
65. Sacred Hearts - Sarah Dunant
66. The Elegance of the Hedgehog - Muriel Barbery
67. The Mystery of Edwin Drood - Charles Dickens
68. The Strain - Guillermo Del Toro & Chuck Hogan
69. Wide Sargasso Sea - Jean Rhys
70. The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins
71. Real Murders - Charlaine Harris
72. Seeing Redd - Frank Beddor
73. The Old Man and the Sea - Ernest Hemingway
74. Sunflowers - Sheramy Bundrick

  2. I'm at 75 books too. Good luck with finishing 25 more!!!! You can do it!!!

  3. I think you can read 25 more books. YOU CAN DO IT !!!

    Anyways best of luck

  4. Congrats on having such a great reading month! Good luck with your last 25!

  5. just make about 20 of them picture books and then you'll cruise it in :)

  6. Good luck. I think you can do it.

  7. I'm so impressed, even if you don't make it to 100! It seems like reading so much would make a real difference in how you see the world... Sadly, the only time I ever read that much was in grad school, and over the past year since I graduated, I've read some awfully silly books! Oh well, I think I'm about to become an expert in children's literature, thanks to the new addition to our family. Take care!

  9. Wow, you're doing great :-) What a fun looking challenge!

  10. I'm so envious of your great reading numbers this year. I'll be scraping by with a sad 50 or so reads, which is down from last year.
