How did your month go? Let me know!


  1. Wow! That's awesome! 13 books in one month?!! I wish I had that kind of reading power! I might actually make a dent in my TBR list.

  2. Thanks Jenny! I haven't always been able to read that many in a month. Last month I didn't do near as many. It just depends on what's going on around me and how much time I'm able to put into it! But I guess we all probably would like to read more than we do. :) Thanks for stopping by!

  3. my goodness September was an amazing reading month for you. I got through 8 books and 1 review.

    So your goal for the entire year is 104?

    I shall be excited when my GFC/Followers reaches 50.


  4. September was a good month for me. I had to make up for August which wasn't the best. 8 books in a month is a good pace. That's actually what my goal is for each month. Anything more than that is just bonus! My total yearly goal was 104 books--which I've actually already hit. That was just an estimate of 2 books per week. But I 100% remember being where you are. Just keep commenting and visiting other bloggers and they'll return the favor (don't forget to leave your link so they can come back to visit you after you comment). Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting! It really means a lot!

  5. Thats so cool you made your reading goal ( with 2 months to go).

    I also thought leaving my link just meant I was only commenting to get followers but, I shall do it from now on.

    I love your posts because they seem so personable.



  6. I'm definitely a goal oriented person. Once I set one, I have a hard time "resting" until I've achieved it. But now I can relax some, and Husband will appreciate that I'm sure.

    I don't think people that. I mean I think leaving your link makes it obvious that you'd like a return visit, but not necessarily expecting followers. And there's nothing wrong with that. I think most of us book bloggers are happy to visit someone else's page who has left us a comment, especially if that person comments regularly like you do--which I totally appreciate by the way. And so I would have had no way of knowing where you blog had you not left me a link. Now I can visit you, and follow which I would do anyway since you comment so regularly. This is a pretty great community that we're a part of. ;)

    Thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind words. I really appreciate it! Going to visit you now!
