July 2017 Report

I didn’t finish nearly as much as I’d intended to this month — every book I’ve read over the last couple of weeks has taken me at least 1 more day than I’d estimated/planned. There are two books I was supposed to read and write about in July that I haven’t started yet — whoops.

Still, I read a lot of pretty good stuff this month, and that’s the important thing, right?

So, here’s what happened here in July.

June 2017 Report

Read a lot in June — meant to squeeze in 2 more (at least), but that was close enough. I didn’t get nearly as much written as I tried (particularly last week — the book I spent most of last week reading took out all my mental energy). Most of what I read was really good and entertaining, but man…those that weren’t? Blech. Thankfully, The Force made up for it all.

Anyway, here’s what happened here in June.

May 2017 Report

22 books finished — not bad. Looking at this, I’m wondering if I gave out too many 4-Star ratings, but I can’t think of any of those that I’d change, so I guess I just had a really good month.

Anyway, here’s what happened here in May.

April 2017 Report

Not as successful as March — in number of things read, or in the quality — there were some things I really didn’t cotton to (which took me longer to read than I prefer). Thankfully, there were a couple of standouts, and a couple of very nice reads, even if I didn’t go ga-ga over them.

So, here’s what happened here in April.

March 2017 Report

All in all, March was a pretty good month — 29 books finished, nearly not enough written (I’m very tired lately, too tired to write, anyway). A good mix of good books and iffy — with a couple of really good ones thrown in. Which is a pretty decent way to spend a hobby/obsession, no?

So, anyway, here’s what happened here in March.

This was a little disappointing

I succumbed to one of those things going around Facebook, and rambled enough that I figured it qualified as a short blog post, so . . .

It’s National Book Week (in the U.S.) [And, no, it’s not, but that’s what the silly FB thing says] The rules are, Grab the closest book to you, turn to pg. 56, and post the 5th sentence as your Status.
Don’t mention the title.
Copy the Rules as part of your post:
Here is mine…
“We can’t risk another event like that.”

That seemed boring, so I grabbed the book that one was stacked on top of (making it almost as close) and got: “Every now and then, Warren reached over and leaned on the horn.” Which is only moderately more interesting.

Both books — both pages, really — contain far more interesting sentences, but them’s the rules.

February 2017 Report

I really thought I read more last month than I did — not sure how I lost track like that. On the plus side, this is probably the highest percentage of winners I’ve had in a while. I did intend to write more than I did, but I could pretty much say that every month. Anyway…
