The Sunday Salon - Monthly Update - October 2010

I haven't done one of these since June or July! Which is when I finished all of my fake challenges and my one real challenge, NO Summer Slide.

I'm now working on a new real challenge - read a good portion of the books that are Newbery Contenders.  I'm working off a list so that makes it a little easier.  The hard part is writing something about each book as I finish it.  I'll update my progress next week.
