Book Reads in October, 2013

I fell behind on this, due to the trip to Hamilton and the con crud that I came back with. Feeling a bit better this morning, so... Since it is the new month of November (only seven days in, right?)... As is my standard usage of my blog space at or near the beginning of the month, I present the listing of my October, 2013 reads.

As you can see from the above reads, October, 2013 was a pretty good month of reading, since I wasn't doing all that much editing and the like, and had no real distractions in the reading time. I read a good quantity of comics this month as well, and that's always good. Catching up on them, is more like. The real surprise read this month was Under My Hat edited by Jonathan Strahan, which was a marvellous collection and had pretty much all excellent stories in it. Overall, I managed to read 7 novels, 1 RPG and RPG products, 3 magazines, 28 comics, and 1 graphic novel in October. This brings the year total in 2013 to a set of numbers that look like this: 54 books, 14 RPGs and RPG products, 22 magazines, 79 comics, and 2 graphic novels.
