What I Read in August

I can't help but brag a little in this post - August was an amazing reading month for me.  Joining the Free Library of Philadelphia was one of the best uses of $25 ever.  I've been able to listen to tons of audiobooks and read lots of ebooks.  I highly recommend checking it out if you like ebooks/audiobooks and your local library doesn't have the best collection.  Here's what I read this month:

Two And Twenty Dark Tales edited by Nina Berry (a collection of dark reimaginings of Mother Good rhymes from YA authors)

Who Made God? And Answers To Over 100 Other Tough Questions of Faith edited by Ravi Zacharias and Norman Geisler

I'd Know You Anywhere by Laura Lippman

Objects of My Affection by Jill Smolinski

MWF Seeking BFF by Rachel Bertsche

Predators I Have Known by Alan Dean Foster

I Was Told There'd Be Cake by Sloane Crosley

Baltimore Blues by Laura Lippman

The Queen of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

If You Ask Me (And Of Course You Won't) by Betty White

The King of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner

A Little Bit Wicked by Kristen Chenoweth

Pretty in Plaid by Jen Lancaster

Faith and Other Flat Tires by Andrea Palpant Dilley

A Conspiracy of Kings by Megan Whalen Turner

Also, I finally got caught up on all my statistics.

Total books read this month: 16
Total books read this year: 80
Pages read this year: 25,880
Money saved by using the library/buying used/reviewing: $886.52

As far as interesting things happening in my personal life during the month of August, the biggest was Decatur Book Festival.  Other than that, I managed to avoid almost all exposure to the outdoors, caulked my bathroom, and took plenty of weekend naps (because how else am I supposed to make it through summer?).  I'll have a DBF post coming up in the next few days AND I have bonus footage of the puppies playing soccer in the backyard with Luke (not me because, obviously, outside = hot = not happening). 


  1. Whoa, that definitely was an awesome reading month!

    I've never heard of the Free Library before. I'll definitely have to check it out!
