Happy Sunday! It's banned book week. Read my post about Speak at Operation Actually Read Bible. "Why Christians Need Speak..."
It's also fall! (Have you signed up for the Fall Into Reading challenge?) I've been able to read a couple of books for this challenge so far. Which leads me to the 24 Hour Read-a-thon. It will be here soon. Very soon. October 9th. I haven't decided what I'll be reading yet. It's just too soon. But. It's not too early to start thinking about thinking about making a list!
I'm still reading Bleak House. I am enjoying it. Much more than I thought I ever would--or could. But yesterday felt like a good finishing-up day. I finished six books! (Sometimes I get so excited about starting books that I forget how satisfying it is finish a book.)
