What I Read in July

Yay July!  I'm not a summer person at all, but I make it through because the kids usually come for an extended visit in the summer.  This year they were here for almost an entire month.  I went with my parents to collect them and help their parents move on the 10th and they don't leave until tomorrow.  I've spent basically every waking, non-working second in between playing endless games of ponies, princesses, ninja warrior, and NASCAR racing.  It's been a blast and I'm heartbroken to see them go.

In terms of my personal happiness, July was a winner.  In terms of my reading success...not so much.  I read fifteen books, but 6/15 of those were in graphic format and 6/15 were young adult/middle grade.  In terms of pages, this was by far my worst month.  I expected as much when I knew the kids were coming, but it's kind of nice to have a slower month every now and then.  I've got a week off between semesters coming up and I'm planning on spending most of it with my nose in a book.

After a While You Just Get Used to It by Gwendolyn Knapp
