October 2013: Wrap Up

Yep that's right.  Not a typo!  
This is ONLY a month late.  Along with the 30 other post I haven't done and the last four I just posted.  OOPPSS!  Better late than never.  Kinda!
October was an ok month.  After rocking September I had high hopes for myself for this October and I ended up overbooked, over obligated, and I over did it!  But I did rock one reading challenge.  Check out these sad stats
I posted 36 post on this blog and October was Save The TaTa's month. (aka Breast Cancer Awareness Month)
In October I bought
  2 books. (A total of 10 book so far this year.  Audiobooks and e-books don't count since they don't take up space on my bookcase.)
 Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga Reviews where we all can link up our post about the new books in our lives.  I also add my new pocketbooks too!

Dead Spots by Melissa F. Olsen (signed)  
I bought this one because she along with  6 other authors were signing books at our book club anniversary party at the bookstore.
