What I Read in August


Another month closer to fall and I couldn't be happier!  I'm so over the heat and humidity - bring on the pumpkin spice scented everything and fall colors and cooler temps.  Ok, right, so in Georgia that stuff is still actually probably a month away, but we have had some actually pleasant mornings the past few days.  And I've been able to get in my car in the mid-afternoon without gasping for breath, so that's a plus.

Speaking of cars...my big event in August was the purchase of a new car!  It's pretty much the nicest and newest car I've ever owned and I still can't believe it's mine.  It's an SUV that's got space for both puppies in the back AND, my personal favorite, bluetooth everything.  I've spent the past few years driving around with my phone in my shirt in order to hear podcasts or audiobooks, so I feel like I'm living in the future now.

In terms of books, here's what I read in August:
