Month in Review: September 2013

September has come and gone and my reading has picked up!!! I'm getting a bit anxious that I might not complete all the reading challenges I signed up for, so I will be strategically picking books to read that will go towards those challenges. I still have 3 months and am not giving up yet!

I also signed up this month to walk for at least 30 minutes a day with a bunch of other book bloggers. Felicia over at Geeky Bloggers Book Blog came up with the idea, along with a cool name and graphic (check it out in my sidebar!). We will be known as the Book Blog Walkers and I am really looking forward to it. We will be using twitter to cheer each other, using the hashtag: BookBlogWalkers. I'll be doing a combo of walking outdoors and using some of Leslie Sansone's walking DVD's. Let me know if you want to join us!
