Had a busy July but it was fun, and included sitting on a beach in Mexico, traveling to Santa Fe, and going to a great conference which was thought-provoking and inspiring. I also got to catch up with some long-lost friends which has been extremely entertaining, so I’ve really enjoyed the last month.
Reading-wise, as I’ve mentioned here, I haven’t been able to keep up my reading pace pre-promotion but I’m fine with that. My best read last month was definitely Helene Hanff’s book and the longest project was Aurora Floyd, but it was worth the effort.
I’m also toying with the idea of picking up cross-stitching again, especially now that I have finally got some new glasses that give me x-ray vision. So – I’m digging through my small pile and seeing what appeals. More on that as warranted, I expect.
So – to the books.
For July 2015, I read the following titles (with links to blog posts about said book where there is one):
- Letter from New York – Helene Hanff (read this one twice)
- An Unnecessary Woman – Rabih Alameddine
- Aurora Floyd – M. E. Braddon
- Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls – David Sedaris (blog post to come)
Total number of books read in July: 5
Total number of pages read: 1359 pages (av. 251 pages)
Fiction/Non-Fiction: 2 F and 3 NF.
Library books vs. books I owned (and thus removed from the home abode): 0 library books and 4 owned books. 1 e-book this month. (Total of 21 books off TBR this year.)
Isn’t the Hanff wonderful? Love her books! 🙂
I have really enjoyed her writing. Glad to find another fan of hers. I’m off to track down any of her other work…
