Favourite book of the month?
Twilight. Did you even need to ask? I've gone ahead and ordered the next 2 books in the series, which I'm very much looking forward to reading.
I guess I'd say Tears of the Giraffe. The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series just isn't for me it seems. The most disappointing would be Bryson's book, The Mother Tongue, because of all the factual errors. I don't like to doubt and start questioning the information in a Non-Fiction book so it won't be a reference book to hang on to like I had thought it would.

Reading Goals for October:
My R.I.P. reads are the first priority this month. I'm down to the last 100 or so pages in Dracula so I'm sure I'll manage 2 more after that. I think the problem will be that there are quite a few more than that that I'd like to fit in. But I really should try to read a couple of books for other challenges as well. We'll see where the month takes me.
