As predicted, I did not get many books read in September. In fact, I finished three:
- Smek for President! by Adam Rex (middle grade, audiobook)
- Lois Lane: Fallout by Gwenda Bond (YA)
- Mindset by Carol S. Dweck (adult, nonfiction)
I just have to accept that I will never get more than 3 or 4 books read in September. Oh well.
I do plan to review all three books, and, as a challenge to myself on that front, I am signing up for the Blog Ahead challenge.
Participants are supposed to have 31+ posts scheduled by the end of the month (the number of scheduled posts you already have + 31), but let’s be real: I am probably not going to hit that goal. For one thing, I rarely, if ever, schedule posts. Secondly, I don’t even think I have 31 post ideas. Not to mention, the posts that count have to go up on Nov. 1 on later. Considering I have nothing scheduled for October and it’s the first week of the month, I can’t honestly say the posts I schedule will be for post-October. Oh, and my life is hectic and I barely have time to watch a half-hour comedy. But I’m going to give it a shot. After all, some is better than none. And if I can schedule some posts that actually get into November? So much the better.
I’m also looking forward to Aarti’s A More Diverse Universe Challenge, which starts tomorrow.
I just have to pick up the book I’m planning to read from the library. Which, I promise, is not happening today. Because I have declared today a Nothing day, which means I’m not leaving the house (maybe to get some food…maybe). So what will I do today? I plan to write a couple of posts, read, and watch some TV. I started my Nothing day last night when I finally finished S1 of the The Flash, so I’m looking forward to getting into more of that kind of fun.

Good luck with your challenge! Yup. Agree with ya any extra posts scheduled (even if you don’t make it to the challenge goal) is a good fantastic thing 😀
I’m doing that Blog Ahead Challenge too! But I’m like you… I rarely schedule posts very far in advance, and my October is already looking pretty empty because I don’t think I’ll finish my books until late in the month. But I wanted to try it because the holiday season is going to be super hectic and it seemed like a good kick in the tush to prep for that.
Yes! I wish I could get all the way into December. I was looking at some of my year-end stuff I normally post and trying to figure out a good way to get ahead on those. I could probably start drafting some of them…
Good luck to you!
