October Summary

October was a busy month around my house, but I still managed to get a lot of reading done.  It was a fun month and Halloween was a blast - with my youngest a year older, we actually managed to trick-or-treat in two neighborhoods. The classic line of the night was uttered by my 4-year-old when a nice older lady gave him 50 cents - "But you're supposed to give us candy".  We'll have to work on teaching him about money.  The 8-year-old on the other hand was thrilled with the money.  The big take of the night was a glow stick - next year I'm buying some of those for the boys to start out the night with!

I read a grand total of 31 books this month - my largest total to date and it came out to 7,699 pages. I also read 15 new authors again this month.

I am so envious of the amount of books you have read this month. How do you do it?

Wow, that's a book a day for October! My two sons both LOVED the Magic Tree House series when they were younger and have passed their books along to their little cousin who's now getting into them. It's a great series!

Glad you and your family had a nice Halloween!
