Your reading totals are DECREASING? lol...Don't I wish....My page total was somewhere around 2300 for the month and I thought it was going to be a good month...sheesh, I need to pick up the pace! At least 100 pages a day!

Have you read any Jeaniene Frost? If you haven't, then you really should. Her novels are AWESOME!!

Rhinoa said...

Thanks - I know I have signed up for a lot of challenges but I think I am on top of them at the moment for the most part. Must start the Arthurian Challenge soon.

Jackie - Thanks for the recommendation, I will check her out. The name is definitely familiar...

Alice said...

You're CRAZY!! 17 books!! WOW...

Susan said...

I am in awe. You read in one month what I've managed to read in the year so far!!! do you ever sleep? that's the only time I can think of to grab - stay up late reading. That, or never ever go out again....but honestly, amazing stats, Rhinoa. and you review most of your books and like them. That is an amazing month! I'm with Chris, lol to the 'pages read' decreasing... :-)
