July 2010 Reading Wrap-Up

You’re all going to yell at me when I say this was sort of a slow month, because I finished 21 books. However, 5 of them were audiobooks, so I feel like my print reading was ever so slightly lower than I would have liked. I suppose that, looking at it objectively, it wasn’t that slow, but the end of my month WAS really slow, after a really hot start.

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

  • Congratulations on another productive month!Finishing 21 books, even if some of them were audio instead of print, is still a great accomplishment! Hope August is just as productive for you! Have fun!

  • If I read 21 books in a month, there is no way I would get all the reviews written. I can’t catch up with the paltry 12 to 15 I read a month. And yes, audiobooks count! At least in my book…

  • It looks like you had a great month to me!

  • Well you’ve go me beat!
    21 books! Wowza.

    I only had 4 books and 4 audio.

  • I was close, with 18 books. But that’s a good month for me.

    I hope to get to Red Hook Road soon, particularly after reading your review.

  • 21 is slow? Then I won’t tell you how many I read! I had a pretty good month considering my reading hasn’t been up to my usual amount these past months. I’m slowly working myself up there again. I need to get back into listening to audio books again. For some, I just stopped. Not sure why though.

  • Michelle

    I’m not going to yell at you but I did read that first sentence to Ben and he laughed. :)

  • Great month of reading!! I still have to get to my copy of Red Hook Road and I hope I enjoy it as much as you did!
