October Wrap Up

I had gotten a little over-zealous and signed up for FOUR different reading events for the month of October.  I thought I'd take a minute now to reflect on each event and how I fared.

RIP X was actually two months - September and October.  I had signed up for "Peril the Second" in which I said I would read 2 books of any length that fits the mood of the event.  I actually ended up reading four:

The first full week of October was the #Frightfall Readathon.  

During this time, I read two of those RIP X books as well as the middle grade book I Survived the Attacks of September 11, 2001 by Lauren Tarshis and the YA novel Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta.  

Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon took place on Saturday, October 17th.  I didn't track exactly how many hours I ended up reading (I can never last the full 24 hours no matter how hard I try) but I do believe that I read the most of any 24 hour readathon to date.  

Finally, there was also the #15in31 event as well in which I attempted to read 15 books within the 31 days of October.  AND I DID IT!!  I really didn't expect to at all...  especially when I essentially lost a full week of reading due to some things that were going on in my life that needed my attention.  But yesterday I realized that I was one book short - so I picked up that Locke & Key volume that also counted toward RIP X!  

I don't expect to go that reading-event crazy again - at least not this year.  I still have a couple of year long challenges I need to think about.  I'm also gearing up for next year's Women's Classic Literature Event with The Classics Club.
