My thoughts on this month:

Fall is definitely here! It is SO cold! Brrr! Time for sweaters, tea, and pumpkin muffins!! :) The only thing missing? Hockey! When is the lockout going to end?? LOL! If you have been reading this blog for a while, you probably know I'm a HUGE hockey fan and it's really sad that they're in a lockout. :(

October was a busy-ish month for me and there were a few days that I didn't get much (if any) reading time, so I'm surprised that I was able to read 14 books this month!

Looking ahead:

Here is what I hope to accomplish in November:

Read 10 books
1 "Just for Fun" book
Reread 1 book
