Monthly Review (September 2009)

September was a really good month, I think. It didn’t go too quickly or too slowly, and I got a lot done! On the other hand, I have gotten a little bit behind on my reading for school. And I’ve added 19 book to my wishlist after reading other bloggers’ reviews, so don’t anyone be saying that bloggers aren’t effective at getting people to read. 😀

I made plans.
I defended audiobooks (and started a little drama).
I finally wrote about my experience at Bubonicon 41.
