Actionable Reads:

I’ve started donating to organizations each month (when I can) inspired by the books I’m reading, thanks to @reading_theend who shared this initiative a couple months back. See my Instagram post for more about it. My aim in posting about it is to encourage others to do the same if they’re able and highlight some organizations doing great work!

Challenges check-in:

  • 5/10 books read from my chosen TBR
  • 0/2 Austen books read (Northanger Abbey and Lady Susan)
  • 15/10+ read from books I own
  • 15/10+ read from my TBR

Upcoming in November:

  • More beautiful bookstores
  • First look at my new logo, perhaps?!
  • A little bookshelf tour to show off some faves!

I still haven’t managed to totally get on top of scheduling blog posts so it’s been taking a lot of time each week, but I’m hoping my monthly schedule will get me back on track. I do have lots of bookish ideas I’d love to share!

What was your favourite part of October? Best read of 2020 so far?

  1. Nothing Much Happens is such a gutsy title for a book, ha!! I feel like this would be especially good as an audiobook. (I have no trouble falling asleep reading, but ouch when the book or whatever device I’m reading on falls on my face!)
