October Reading Challenge: Thin Mints

Once again, October is rolling around, and I'm behind on my Goodreads 2017 Reading Challenge. So I thought I'd bring back the "Skinny Books Reading Challenge". I pulled together a nice stash of books that will help put a dent in my "completed" pile. Some were from the library, some I bought, some were sitting dusty on my shelf, and some were recommended by my children. I'll take *almost* anything; variety is the spice of life.

Last October I read 4.75", so this year I decided to bump it up to a solid 5". My reading pile consists of childrens books, classics, humor, writing wisdom, middle grade, and inspirational.

The Thinner The Better

Here's the breakdown:
3.) Tex by S.E. Hinton* - Young Adult Classic
5.) Yiddish Wisdom Compiled by Chronicle Books - Humor and Inspiration
8.) Itty Bitty Animals by Joan Emerson* - Early Reader
9.) Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt* - Middle Grade Classic
12.) Super Structure by James Scott Bell* - Writing Wisdom

* A recommended read!

This made me laugh. I'm also a little behind and will probably resort to reading graphic novels soon. :)

Exactly. Picked up my daughter's new copy of "Real Friends" by Shannon Hale and boom! One more book tossed onto the completed pile :)
