November 2017 Report

I had a pretty good month, it seems. I gave out a whole lot of 4 Stars — which means I read/talked about a whole lot of good books. Good way to spend the penultimate month of 2017.

Here’s what happened here in November.

October 2017 Report

October’s been a frustrating month for me, and I’m glad to put it behind me. Almost everything took a day or more longer than I thought it would to read, I had a hard time writing a few posts (don’t ask me why), and like I mentioned yesterday, I got knocked out by a stupid cold for a few days. On the other hand, looking back at this post, I read some pretty cool books — and when I can focus on that, this is a pretty fun hobby. And If I can accomplish most of what I want to in November, this’ll be a much happier post next month.

But enough of that, here’s what happened here in October.

September 2017 Report

My numbers were a little off — which surprised me, really, I thought I had some busy weeks. But, oh well, I seemed to really like almost everything (average rating of 3.99 this month). Maybe I’m getting soft. Or I’m just reading a lot of good books.

Anyway, here’s what happened here in September.

August 2017 Report

The end of the month snuck up on me, I kept wondering why I saw all these August Wrap-Up posts Thursday night, and then I looked at the calendar. So I paused my other post and got this assembled (frankly, that worked out pretty well for me, I just didn’t have the energy to finish the other post). Turns out that August was a pretty good month — I liked everything I read, most things I liked a lot.

Anyway, here’s what happened here in August.

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.
