The Month in Books - October 2010

At the start of 2010, I set a goal to read 15,000 pages by year's end, including twelve books of greater than 650 pages. I am measuring progress in pages, rather than titles, to avoid any bias toward shorter books. Here's what I read in October:

  1. Gone, Baby, Gone - Dennis Lehane
  2. Prayers for Rain - Dennis Lehane
  3. Churchill - Martin Gilbert

Pages Read: 1,746
Year-to-Date: 14,415
Books > 650 pages: 4
