Meanwhile the pile of shame continues to look particularly unhealthy as I add to it faster than I read anything out of it (you’d think writing these posts every month would actually do something for me eventually)…

So quite a few completed series this month (which is especially nice when it comes to LNs since it feels like so many simply never end). Numbers are down a bit from August being 38 and 18 vs 59/20, but I am pleased I didn’t fall too far behind in my LN reading. Heck if you count Katanagatari as 3 books I actually accomplished more than usual. ^^;

Here’s the backlog atm, looking pretty busy since I bought a number of books off a friend of mine. Hahaha…ha.

Currently reading: Combatants Will Be Dispatched! volume 4 (LN)
