August 2009 Reading Wrap-Up

I finished 18 books in August, which I think is fantastic.  We’ll see what happens in September when I go back to work…  My 18 books were comprised of nearly 6,000 pages.  This puts me at 129 books for the year, which means I’m only 21 books away from my goal of 150!  I think this is a definite probability, I need to read just over 5 books a month for the rest of the year tomake it!

After my list of what I read this month, you’ll find a list of the other reviews I posted this month:
