August 2013 Reading Wrap-Up

So, I finished 12 books in August, which seems to pretty much be my new normal. This month it was almost half and half, 5.33 audiobooks and 6.66 print or ebooks (I started Godiva in audio, and then switched to print partway through. This comes down to a little over 60 hours of audio and not quite 2500 pages of print. The audiobooks are flying by these days, because I started doing the Couch to 5K running program (I’ll be running an actual 5k at the end of September) and I listen while I run.

One thing I have been not so good at lately is getting stuff actually posted on the blog. I have about a million posts in draft, and never any time to write them. I’m hoping I can get in a slightly more regular schedule again after Daniel goes back to preschool.
