September in Review

Looking Back

After considering July and August my least favourite months of the year, I had higher hopes for September. My reading was more consistent and that was a huge relief. I will never get to all the books I want to get to this year, because look how quickly the year is winding down! But, I have been blogging consistently, so that is a step up over the last couple years. I don't really do review posts, but I talk about books in other ways. We can pretend that works. lol

They are calling for a bad winter, so in case that is a reality, we have to enjoy the nice weather as much as possible. The winter can feel really claustrophobic and cabin fever is a real thing! I mean, hopefully it will mean more free time to read and other hobbies, but at the same time I like being able to go for random drives and seeing places. It is where I get all my pictures for my week in review post! Otherwise, you will just see the cats and dog. And, likely books since I am trying to get into using Litsy now that is available to me! (bookishnerd in case you missed that.)

  1. Wow, what a month! I hope your winter is milder than they predicted.

  2. Your winters are already pretty impressive! I guess maybe you should stock up on indoor activities just in case.

  3. More time spent blogging and all that reading done too - sounds like September was great!

    I'm intrigued by the Off The Bookshelf Colouring Book; I'll have to look in to that. Happy October!

  4. Terrific blog title! September was an excellent reading month for you. Wow!

  5. DAMN that is a lot of books! Well done! And I'm keeping my fingers for a mild winter for you. I don't really know what kind of winter's expected in Louisiana, but I also don't fully believe that we're ever going to get to winter. It's going to be summer forever, I'm pretty sure.

  6. I still can't believe how much you read in a month. It's so crazy to me. Does it snow a lot where you live? You're on the east side of Canada, right?

  7. You are a reading machine LOL great month
