October 2011 Reading Wrap-Up

So, this was basically a super-awesome reading month for me. Despite being crazy busy I finished 24 books, six of which were audiobooks. That was a total of 50 hours of listening and just over 6,000 pages of print and ebooks. I also hit a total of 200 books read this year around the end of the month, so that was a pretty big deal.
