So this is the order of my reading list for the next little while. I'm disciplining myself not to have more than one book on the go at the same time like I've always done before, so that I stay focused on just the one. I do appreciate you all taking the time to vote & share your thoughts on this.
• I didn't post a Whip Crackin' update for October because the news on that front is not good. Suffice it to say after 4 months of staying faithful to my workout routine, nothing has changed.
