    So I managed to read an entire series, The Gatekeepers, this month even though I didn't get all the reviews posted.  My favorite book this month was Another Kind of Cowboy and my favorite audio was Enthusiasm.  I joined three challenges, one of which is my own and finished two.  I'm closing in on a few more of challenges and should have them done by the end of September.


    1. Wow that's a lot of books! You had a great month.

    2. That is an impressive list! Great job on those challenges, too! (I need to work on being better at challenges)

    3. WOW! That is A LOT! You must be a super fast reader!
