What I Read In June

So, July already!  June has just flown by for me.  I did a lot less reading at the beginning of the month, mostly because I was finishing up things at work and adjusting to being a lady of leisure.  I did better towards the end of the month and I'm still on track with my goal of 130 by the end of the year.  This month, I read:

Big Brother by Lionel Shriver
Gulp  by Mary Roach
Quiet: The Power of Introvers In A World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain
The Ocean At The End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
The Good Nurse by Charles Graeber
Pain, Parties, Work by Elizabeth Winder
The Execution of Noa P. Singleton by Elizabeth L. Silver

Total books read in June: 7
Total books read this year: 73
Total pages in June: 2174
Total pages this year: 21,495

This is also a pretty good point to evaluate how I'm doing with my goals for the year.  52 Weeks to An Organized Home is still happening, and being home all day has given me LOTS of time to work on it.

As far as my reading goals go, as I said above I'm on track for reading 130 books this year.  I'm not doing great with my goal of browsing more.  I've only gone to the store once to buy a book I found while browsing and I still haven't read that book yet.  I need to work on that one.

I'm also not doing well on my goal of reading books not published in 2013.  I'm still over-requesting new releases from the library and NetGalley and not reading enough older books.  I need to catch up on my Best American reads and my Presidential Challenge reads too.  Geeze, I'm not doing so well...I need to keep reminding myself of my goals - I had to look up my January post to even remember what they were.

Any words of motivation?  How did you do in June?
