52 Books in 52 Weeks - September & October's Book


Yes, I know, I've spent two months AWOL from this blog. That was mainly due to the fact that I read so little in September that it would have been embarrassing to write one whole post about it.

With the end of the year rapidly approaching, I really had to get a move on. My September books were:

  • "Jingo" by Terry Pratchett

  • "The Neuromancer" by William Gibson

The latter of the two was an audiobook, as well. In total it took me 27 days to finish both books. At a combined 750 odd pages it wasn't a great effort.

So I jumped into October with renewed determination. Having come so far, I can't fall short at the final hurdle. October saw be download a slew of Kindle titles and have at them. No longer would I watch Netflix on the commute or while cooking - those times would be reserved for reading.

As a result, my October books were:

  • "Between the World and Me" by Te-Nehsi Coates

  • "Why I'm Not Talking to White People About Race" by Renni Eddo-Lodge

  • "The Giver" by "Lois Lowry

  • "Troublemaker" by Leah Remini

  • "All Quiet on the Western Front" by Erich Remarque

  • "Band of Brothers" by Stephen E. Ambrose

Six books for a total of 1522 pages! I think that might be my best month since I started the challenge.

Still, I will have to keep up this kind of pace if I want to hit 52 by the end of December - I've only just managed to hit 39 books read.

What with this and NaNoWriMo starting, I had better get a move on!
