So, this is obviously very late because this month has been…well, you know how it’s been.
Next month is the last month of the challenge, so I’ll be posting two link ups: one for December reads & one for wrap-up posts. I’ll use the wrap up post linky to do the giveaway.
As for this month’s reads, please encourage each other by clicking on links and reading and commenting on reviews! It’s not required, but it is nice. It’s also a great way to build up a community of readers committed to reading diversely.
Link up your reviews below. If you don’t have a book blog, but have Goodreads or Library Thing, etc., you may use that to participate and post your links to your reviews. Get more details about the challenge here. It’s not too late to sign up!
