September has long been my least favourite month of the year, mainly because it’s back to school and work following a long summer vacation. This September was incredibly busy from the outset for me, since I began applying for jobs at the end of August and as a result my month was dominated by applications, paperwork and the occasional interview (as well as two weeks working full time) – all this meant that my reading took a back seat. I only managed to read two books during September, but thankfully they both ticked off categories for my 2015 Reading Challenge.
September 2015 statistics
Total books read: 2
Total pages read: 881
Favourite book: 1,227 QI Facts To Blow Your Socks Off by John Lloyd, John Mitchinson and James Harkin
#5 A book with a number in the title – 1,227 QI Facts To Blow Your Socks Off by John Lloyd, John Mitchinson and James Harkin: True Story (#48)
#37 A book with a colour in the title – Grey by E.L. James: One Too Many Shades of Grey (#49)
Last month I set myself the target of reading four books during September (and check off at least two more categories from the Reading Challenge itself) – clearly I didn’t accomplish my primary goal, but I’m content in knowing that I’m two steps closer to completing the 2015 Reading Challenge. I’ve got a feeling that October is going to be equally busy, but I’m going to attempt to finish four books by prioritising reading into my daily schedule once more. Wish me luck!
Thirty-five down, fifteen to go. (Forty-nine read)
