How did you and your children do this month?  I'd like to invite you all to join us for the month of October.  Those of you who have already joined in and those who are just finding out about it.  I'll be adding a bit more information to my blog about this specific challenge.  I'm also looking for some books to share so stay tuned.

Happy Reading!!!

Good job w/reading that many books w/your children. It looks like you had a slow month :-) because I know you're usually reading 100+. I'm glad you were also able to squeeze in a few books for yourself. I'm trying to do a little more of that and my list is growing of books to read.

I'm on board for October.

Great List! We are finding it more of a challenge this time of year. Last month we didn't make it to 100 but this month we did. It's nice to know that other families love reading as much as we do.
