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.)

(Right {Read More}

What I Read in June 2019

I’m really happy to get back to some more regular reading! In June, I read 8 books – some winners, and some losers. Since it’s the halfway point of the year, my total of 34 books read thus far means I am 16 books behind schedule in my goal to read 100 books a year. While I don’t expect to make up for that, I would like to finish the year with 84 books read – so that I am {Read More}
