I was very pleased to take part in Lynda Renham's book launch and hosting a Q&A session with her on the blog.  Lynda also generously donated a book for the give-away which was won by Jo Harrison of Writer's Block Admin Services.

In spite of my very definite mention of a book buying ban (the lady doth protest too much), I failed big time. You will have seen reading my three posts documenting the books that came my way that I brought in 28 books from fairs, charity shops, car boot sales plus I was given a couple of WBN books.  If you add on the library books and I am only including those I am reading - 4 making a total of 32.

What can you expect in October?
Reviews including The Kingmaker's Daughter - Philippa Gregory, The Snow Child - Eowyn Ivey and The Racketeer - John Grisham.  I shall probably include the next reading group choice amongst the reviews.  I may have a 'PreLoved' give-away for you too.  Watch this space!

Did you have a good September in books?
