I’m still recovering from the readathon (which was a lot of fun, btw!) but I thought I’d better talk about my RIP Vi challenge reading, as it’s nearly the end of October and thus the end of the challenge.
So far? It’s gone pretty bad. I haven’t read any of the books on my original list, and though I’ve read several books that fit into the RIP Vi idea I still feel kind of bad for not actually reading the books I originally said I would.
Since it’s silly for feeling bad about what I haven’t read, I’ve decided to do another list, one with RIP VI-y books I have read.
1. Mister Creecher – Chris Priestley
2. The Letter, the Witch and the Ring – John Bellairs
3. The Boneshaker – Kate Milford
4. The Devil’s Elixir – ETA Hoffmann (although technically I’m still reading it)
I’d still like to read the books on my original RIP VI list, but I honestly don’t feel like doing so right now. I’ll just have to put them off for a little bit longer, I guess!
How’s your RIP VI reading going? Have you stuck to your original list of books, or have you gone in an entirely different direction?

Books acquired this week:
- Agatha Christie: Murder in the Making by John Curran (publisher). Plus a tote bag for me to give away! Exciting!
Now that I’ve got the Christie biography I really do need to hunker down and finish her autobiography. I’m planning on giving the bio (it’s an ARC) away with the tote bag, so I need to read that quickish! I’m also reading one of her mysteries at the moment.
