Firstly there is an awesome book giveaway here by Alaine Queen of Happy Endings. She has a choice of three, Fire the prequel to Graceling by Kristin Cashore, the new Audrey Niffenegger Her Fearful Symmetry and Juliet Marillier's Heart's Blood. You can only be entered for one so good luck choosing and she will post them internationally.

August started as a great month for reading, but once I got the kittens it all went downhill from there... I have barely read at all since they arrived, but I am just over halfway through listening to my first audiobook which has been a really fun experience. I wanted to finish the 999 challenge in August but didn't quite manage it. If things calm down a little I should get it done by the early finish date 9/9/09 fingers crossed. I really need to get stuck into some of my other challenges including then new RIP IV hosted by Carl V at Stainless Steel Droppings.

Ever since you posted pictures of the kitties (was it on Twitter? I can't remember), my husband has been moping around for one. I think I might get him one for Christmas.

I think you're doing great, Rhinoa! If only I could read half of the books you read in a month! :P

Alice said...

Great job, Rhinoa! You're doing very well with all your challenges. :)

Hazra said...

Great work! You are doing much better on your challenges than I am.

Iliana said...

You are doing great! I have been falling a bit off track with my reading challenges but there's still time left to see if I can make a dent :)

Hope you can finish your 999 challenge on time!

Gee, only read 10 books in August! I think I read the same amount, which is fantastic for me. I'm still behind in my goal of 100 books this year, though! You're double my total already!
