I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
I read 20 books during October.
The best book of the month was also a re-read (True Crime Addict) and I found it almost as fascinating the second time through, a real feat.
Thirteen of these titles were for Halloween Bingo. They are indicated by (H).
Two were part of my Science Fiction & Fantasy reading project (SFF). Three were part of the Boxall 1001 Books (*).
All in all, I would have to say that it was a successful month of reading (and I managed to have a social life too, go me!)
