Sunday Salon: October Wrap Up


October Wrap Up:

The Read-a-thon this month made October a great month for reading! This was my first time participating in it, and I loved every minute of it… even though I had to sleep through 11 hours of it because I was sick.

I felt such a feeling of community throughout the read-a-thon. If you didn’t get a chance to participate, try to join in on the next one. It really was a good time.

This month, I have added the following books to my finished pile:

  1. The Impostor’s Daughter, by Laurie Sandell, 247 pages, October
  2. The Plain Janes, by Cecil Castellucci and Jim Rugg, 176 pages, October 24
  3. The Giver, by Lois Lowry, 180 pages, October 24
  4. American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang, 233 pages, October 24
  5. The Strain, by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hoga, 401 pages, October 31

I’m hoping to start getting some reviews up soon.

Avenue Q:

On a non-book related note, this week I went to see the traveling Broadway show of Avenue Q at my local theater. What a great show!I laughed throughout the entire show… which caused my cough to get a lot worse. But it was worth it. This show is a bit different with songs about internet porn and a character based on Gary Coleman. Since the show, I bought the soundtrack, but I haven’t had a chance to listen to it. I’m hoping today I put it on while I do some cleaning.

I hope everyone had a great Halloween!

  1. Great job, Nan. You hit the nail on the head with your talk about readathon: it’s all about community involvement. That’s what makes it so special!

  2. I had a lot of fun with the read-a-thon, and think you did a great job considering you were sick! I think the mini challenges were my favorite.

  3. I always enjoy the readathon. It gives me such a high.

    I read The Imposter’s Daughter for the readathon. Loved it!
