Reading New England Round-up: October 2016

Reading New England

We’re in the final stretch of the Reading New England challenge, and some participants have already met their goals and shared updates on their progress. However, even if you’re late to the party, you can still take part by reading just one book, or participate in our readalong in December (details to be announced soon).

As usual, I’ve so much enjoyed seeing what everybody else has been reading. Here are the reviews:

 

And some update posts:

  • Lark of Lark Writes… completed the six-state challenge. Hooray!
  • At Adventures of a Bibliophile, Stephanie has been keeping up with her goal of one book per month for the challenge, along with an impressive array of other challenges.

 

Plus other links of interest:

  • A visit to the Robert Frost Farm, from Parade (I got lost when I tried to find it a couple of weeks ago, so was happy to have the virtual tour)
  • As Matthew was approaching, some hurricane books (from New England and elsewhere) were suggested by Books on the Table.

  1. I’ve acquired a selection of Lovecraft stories in the hopes I’ll get to read at least some of them before the RNE Challenge is up! Then it’ll be half of New England I’ll have covered … Isn’t 2016 flying past fast!

  2. This sounds like so much fun! I’m sure I have New England books around here… I did read 3/4 of Dorothy Canfield Fisher’s Seasoned Timber, a novel about a headmaster, but got bored with it. I do enjoy most of her books, though.
