Fortunately, it was a good reading month! That helps, doesn't it? I finished six books last month, and since one of those was 1000 pages long, I think that's pretty good:
- The Pillars of the Earth, an epic novel by Ken Follett
- The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien, a novel about the Vietnam War
- Bruiser by Neal Schusterman, a teen audio
- Sometimes I Feel Like a Nut, a memoir on audio by Jill Kargman
- Middle School is Worse Than Meatloaf, a unique middle-grade novel
- Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
So, that was a nice mix of four grown-up books, and two kids/teen books, with two on audio. I enjoyed all of these. I always hate trying to choose a favorite, but I guess that would be The Pillars of the Earth.
Where Are You Reading Challenge Update: I didn't add much to my map this month - a pin for Vietnam and another pin in England for The Pillars of the Earth. I will add two more when I get home and can figure out where Bruiser and the Middle School book took place, though I already returned Bruiser to the library, so that might be a lost cause. Anyone else know where it took place? It may not have been named. So, I am still at 13 different states and now 8 countries outside the US. Here's my updated map:

And, I also joined a new challenge this month, the Fall Into Reading Challenge. So far, I have read two of the books on my lists for that challenge, Fahrenheit 451 and Middle School is Worse Than Meatloaf (plus two more this week), so I have a good start there.
