Monthly Review (uh, v. late): October 2009

For all that I did in October, it doesn’t feel like I did a lot. Maybe because the month went by so quickly? But, I mean, I was in the 24 hour readathon, and I did the Blogtoberfest, and I interviewed my first author. I wrote a big thing about book reviews and me and about books that age well (or not). More big stuff than I normally do in a single month, but I don’t remember feeling overwhelmed at all.

Now, if only I could get those blasted reviews finished…
