UPDATE: September Reads

It's been a struggle to get reading in, with back to school and all, but some good books have helped and some review books in the mail have changed my reading plans. Thanks randomhouse.
I tried to immerse myself in the RIP II challenge for fall, and did very well, reading all four of my books; just a few short stories to keep in the mood, and start on some new challenges, like the Seconds Challenge and the Book to Movie Challenge. A few more books to finish the NYT Notable Books challenge, and The Road (I'm at 5 of 16 in the library queue, I started at 24!) for complete the Dystopian Challenge. Things are looking good; well, except for that pile of physics labs over there, looking at me, wanting ot be corrected.
