Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Hello wonderful people!

Our Sept. RAT was supposed to be from today until the 28th. Since half the day is already gone, I'll move it to the 24th thru the 30th.

Get those books ready, and let us know how your reading is going in this topic! :)

Lori Goldstein I too like Mad Scientist have a pile of library books to get through. Also 3 E-books with one being nearly 550 pages.

So think I will set a goal of at least 1/3 of my mega E-Book and at least 2 library books to finish.

message 11: by Mad Scientist (new)

Mad Scientist (madscientist) | 1119 comments It is different. I didn't like it right away. But I did warm up to it. I read the ARC so I can only imagine how much better the real book is. I like how the ink is different!

message 30: by ★Meghan★ (new)

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 1455 comments Great job Sarajayne! I usually do most of my reading during the week also. However with how busy it has been that hasn't happened much lately. :( (I worked multiple 12 hour shifts this week with no break.) I haven't even finished my second book this week. I should probably get to reading it... as it is really for a team challenge.


message 31: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) From the looks of it everyone really did some awesome reading! Sad to say, I completely forgot about the RAT after I got offline. :/ Have got to get online more lol


message 32: by Stacie (new)

Stacie (shorty_320) | 138 comments Since I last posted, I finished four more and half of two others:

Finished:
The Black Circle (39 Clues, #5) by Patrick Carman , Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy (Gallagher Girls, #2) by Ally Carter Party Princess (The Princess Diaries, #7) by Meg Cabot , and Bone, Vol. 8 Treasure Hunters by Jeff Smith .

Got halfway through Wicked Lovely (Wicked Lovely, #1) by Melissa Marr (which I have to admit, I'm not impressed by) and Come Closer, Roger, There's a Mosquito on Your Nose by Bill Amend

So I think that makes 8 books finished, and 2 started but not finished.
