I woke up this morning thinking today was June 1st. Like most people, you probably know it’s June 2nd because you checked a calendar yesterday or at some point paid some attention to your phone or some other device that told you what day it was. Me? Well, obviously I didn’t or would have noticed that today was not the day I thought it was. So, instead of a review, I thought I’d do a wrap-up post to see where I am with a few things.
May was an average reading month for me with 7 books read and no DNFs. Looking over the list, I read more than I thought I did considering my job gets crazy in May which always cuts back on my reading time.
The Ark by Boyd Morrison
The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova
Persuasion by Jane Austen
The Summer We Read Gatsby by Danielle Ganek
The City & The City by China Mievielle
In Great Waters by Kit Whitfield
Shakespeare Undead by Lori Handeland
Three books stood out — The Summer We Read Gatsby, The City & The City, and Shakespeare Undead.
I’ve been meaning to, and maybe I’ll get to it this week for a Sunday Salon post, go over the status of the challenges I’m participating in. I’ve tried to keep track of everything but I fell behind and need to take a closer look to see where it all began to crumble. Not the challenges, just my record keeping for the moment. I suspect I’m probably doing better than I appear to be.
As for reviews, I’m woefully behind. Last night I wrote down a few notes for books I read while we were on vacation but I still need to put butt in chair and actually type them up so in the coming days I hope to accomplish that goal.
Tomorrow I plan to get back to regularly scheduled programming. Unfortunately, my brain still thinks it’s in vacation mode…
