*****

I have to say that I was pretty pleased at the number of books and other written stuff that I read in October. While there were a few re-reads this past month, there was some excellent reading in this batch of books and whatnot. My favourite reads of the month were the Fifth Doctor Sourcebook for the Doctor Who roleplaying game (Peter Davison is one of my favourite classic Doctors), Jennifer Pelland's Machine, the River of Heaven Roleplaying Game PDF (can't wait for the physical book to arrive!), and The Borribles.

Overall, I managed to read 8 novels, 3 RPGs and RPG products, 3 magazines, 0 comics, and 1 graphic novel in October. That brings the total for the year so far in 2014 to a set of numbers that look like this: 71 books, 28 RPGs and RPG products, 22 magazines, 10 comics, and 4 graphic novels.

Anyway, thoughts and comments are always welcome. :)
