What I Read in August 2020

I read 12 books in the month of August! That’s a significant step up for me, and I’m really glad my reading game is back on (rather than me just socializing and never taking time to read). I’m currently at 77 books read in 2020, which is 10 ahead of my goal to read 100 by the end of the year. Going to keep this momentum up in September, for sure! 5 stars: Rodham, by Curtis Sittenfeld: I love, love, {Read More}
