The word is SWAK. Lets get started!

You use the first letter of a book you have read in September (A, an, the.. you can leave out). Or you can use the first letter of the Authors name or Surname.

Good luck everyone!

Well it only counts for books you read in September :(
But if lets say you start a book and you are still within the first 100 pages and the month switches over its ok :)


message 6: by Monique (new)

Monique | 34 comments I've started most of them this week, along with a million others so when it's September I'll most probably still be on page 5 of each of them!LOL

Lauren Smith Do you have to complete the book in September, or start AND complete the book in September? I started Blindness by Jose Saramago ages ago, but I'm hoping to finish it in September. Will it count?

Well you have to complete the book in September. But lets say you are in the first 100 pages or so of it, and you finish in September it counts :) How far are you in the book?


message 12: by Lauren (new)

Lauren Smith It's an e-book, and the way it's been formatted it's only about 125 A4 pages long, although the book entry I'm using to track it on Goodreads is over 300 pages long. So I'm almost done, but it looks like I'm not even halfway with the currently-reading system.

Lu | 12629 comments Mod
Well see if you can finish it in the next 2 days :)


message 14: by Lu (new)

Lu | 12629 comments Mod
But you know what. I have also been in the situation where i started a book in one month and finished it in another. I couldn't really see in which month i read the majority of the book. So its all up to you :)
