September & October in Review

by Gwen

It was a strange month here at Chew & Digest. My TBR pile has exploded to the point where I am learning to say no to people and I have been working hard at reading some classics that I never quite got around to back in the day. I have to thank the Kindle for all of the free classics.

I put the classics in red just to see how many I did. During BBAW, I realized that I had put a halt to reading them and that made me sad. Now what makes me sad is that I have been so busy reading and reviewing for work, that I haven’t been reviewing for here too much.

New Problem. New Solution!

I have an exciting review filled week coming up.

  1. BBAW? Oh, wait, I know what that is, NM. I can send you a ton more books to add to your pile. A big steamy pile 🙂

    Or, I could just read the ones that I have and actually publish my review posts. I need to work on that, especially since I spend so much time reading them and then writing the dang posts.

    Still need to do that tart– its going to wait (along with the pot pie) till my bff gets here. I have made an excel sheet of everything that needs doing between now and when I pick her up from the airport next Saturday and if I stay up from now till 2 days after she is here I should get it all done. Go me!

  2. That tart is making my stomach growl! Yum…love goat cheese. It looks like you had a very productive two months. I know how it feels to have a TBR that would take years to complete. I almost never accept review books any more.

  3. Great collection of books! And you got quite a few classics in this past month, so congratulations 🙂

  4. Look forward to your reviews this week!!!

  5. That tart looks delicious! Wow. And also, good job with all the books. I’d say more, but that tart is distracting me!

  6. Um, that tart looks super yum yum. Recipe please! 🙂

    I finally bought Monster of Florence last night. I remember reading your review some time ago and I thought it looked awesome. I found it on the bargain shelves at B&N!
