September 24th - September 30th was Banned Books Week! The Harry Potter series was the top banned/challenged book for the years 2000-2009.

Co-authoring is becoming more popular with best-selling authors. It went from 2% in 1994 to what percent in 2014? Take a guess here.

Happy October! We are now in the final run until the end of the year. How is everyone doing with the challenge? Are you behind? Ahead? Right where you want to be? I'm behind but I have a plan to do a lot of reading this month (until I get distracted by tv shows, but I can dream). October challenges should be up by the end of the week!

What is everyone reading this week? I'm working on my reread of Pride and Prejudice as well as A Crown of Wishes. I love this book. The descriptions are gorgeous and the two main characters are beautifully snarky. I also got addicted to an anime this weekend and I'm now reading the manga series- Ouran High School Host Club. After years of resisting (I only read graphic novels!!), I have caved. Lol.

Have you ever done that? Resisted a genre and then accidentally got sucked into something and now you're hooked?

Have a great week, everyone!

Jasmine Holloman | 11 comments I'm reading the Black Panther series. I didn't enjoy the first book as much as I thought I would. I'm hoping the second book is better. Nevertheless, the artwork in the book is BEAUTIFUL.
