What I Read in August 2019

I was doing a pretty good job reading a lot in August, but then lagged when I was volunteering at Experience Camp for a week. No electronics allowed (bummer for my Kindle!), plus, I was too tired at the end of each night to do more than fall into bed and fast asleep. But I still managed to read eight books in August, and two books a week is right about where I aim to be. I’m currently at 55 {Read More}

What I Read in July 2019

I read a lot this month, for a variety of reasons, including finishing two books last night just before it turned to August. (Ugh, insomnia / anxiety is not a good reason to read more… but it’s better than the alternative.) In July, I read twelve books, which I think is a record for me this year, and also means I’m actually starting to get back on schedule to have read 100 books by the end of the year. (Right {Read More}
