My year long challenge of 200 books doesn't look like I'm going to make it since I'm only at 139. This year has been harder for reading but with my hubby returning to flying and having a better routine things should be better.

Goodreads Games/ Reading challenges
Scavenger - hunt Almost over
Speed Reading - only a few weeks in long way
Monopoly - Started this week
Bingo - Starting this Sunday

I'm a glutton and I love them. I just can't seem to say no so I've got four going it should be interesting going to use as many review books as I can.

End of year goals
Clear as many review books on my TBR
Fine tune my routine.
Enjoy my stress free blogging next two months.
Finish off the remaining challenges and figure out my plans for next year.

Alright November hit me with your worst!!
