September Review

Another month has come and gone.  How is it October already?  The weather is turning cooler here in Basel, and soon we will be in winter coats full time.  But for now, I am enjoying the slightly cooler weather, and watching the leaves turn  on the trees.  We are leaving for a vacation to Barcelona in a few days which we have been looking forward to.  A good start to a new month.

In September I read 21 books in September (and blogged about 12 of them - the rest of the reviews are to come!)  Nine of those books were for my Read The World Challenge.  I veered off quite a bit from that challenge this month only because I discovered a new library with an English section!  Hard to pass that up.

It was a GREAT reading month.  I was in a mode - reading at least 100 pages or more a day, added some audio books, and just kept a good pace.  Some of these books were short, so I doubt I can keep up this pace next month.  At least 10 would be my goal.

Here are the books I read during the last month.  If you click on the title, it will lead you to the review if there is one.
