June 2010 Reading Wrap-Up

June was sort of a slow reading month. I blame Audiobook Week. And LOST, which we are currently working through season by season.

After my list of what I read this month, you’ll find a list of the other reviews I posted this month, as well as an update of how I’m doing in my challenges. Still, I did complete 16 books last month: 13 print books at a total of 4,311 pages and 3 audiobooks for 1.6 days of audio.
