  1. Wow, you do read a lot of books!

  2. Mind boggling and amazing as usual.

    Question for you: do you ever get burned out reading at all? Fall into reading slumps?

  3. You and Becky both blow me away!!

  4. Busy busy month. Good work!

  5. Woo! Congrats on hitting 300! Looks like a great month to me. =)

  6. Wow you had a stellar month. Congrats on hitting 300.

  7. I think I about fainted when I read your first line! :)

    I'm just so curious how many books you'll have read by the end of the year. Can we start placing bets or something? :)

    Here's hoping October is another fabulous month for you.

  8. 300 books? In nine months? Oh, I am absolutely green with envy!! I'll be lucky to break 100 books this year! How do you do it?

  9. Crikey, I can only dream of making it to 100! I never have the time! :(

  10. I felt faint just by reading this post. Kelly, I salute you!

  11. Wow! Your reading this year has been outstanding!!

  12. Me again :) I hope you're going to post your thoughts on Jack of Fables - I'm really curious about that spin-off!

    O_O I knew you were closing in on the 300, but... You made it! I want your reading speed and skills, I really do!

    (Not green with envy at all, no. ^-~) Congratulations on that mile-stone!

  14. Wow! You had a great month! Hope October is just as good!

  15. What an awesome month. I have a few of the books that were your favorites for the month...can't wait to get to them.

  16. I think I can safely say I'll never read 300 books in 9 months. I'm impressed. Lots of those you finished this month are on my wishlist. It could very well be your fault. :)

  17. Ana: haha, it appears that way!

    Amanda: Yes, I do! Which you know because I answered you on Twitter.

    Pat: Thanks!

    NotNessie: Thanks!

    Meghan: Thank you! I was pretty excited about the 300 myself...

    Bella: Yes, lots of good books. :)

    Iliana: I am pretty proud about the 300. I think I can slow down now, but we will see what happens.

    Michelle: I actually don't really know! It's not like all I do is read, but it looks that way sometimes.

    Mariel: I have had slow years before. Last year actually.

    Alice: lol Thanks!

    Joanne: I plan to post about Jack of Fables. I have the fourth one here to read and then I might just post about all four together.

    libritouches: Yeah, the closer I got the more I really wanted to accomplish it and the more I read!

    Tink: I hope October is good, too!

    Staci: I look forward to your thoughts on them!

    Nancy: Well, you read a lot! I wouldn't worry about it. :) Look forward to your thoughts on some of those books when you read them.
