A Month in Summary - June '09
Yes. I know. It's the middle of September and I'm just now getting around to posting my monthly summary for June. We've had a busy summer! A road trip to the Sandhills, a trip to the Oregon Coast, a getaway visit with friends in Missouri (near Kansas City), and a long weekend at the beach in Virginia. Time flies when you're having fun, right? I have to say I'm beginning to look forward to the shorter days of the coming season. I can't wait to curl up on the couch under a warm blanket with a cup of tea and a good book.
But back to my June's stats!
The Wildwater Walking Club by Claire Cooke (2.5/5)
Maus I: A Survivor's Tale: My Father Bleeds History by Art Spiegelman (3.5/5)
In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto by Michael Pollan (4.5/5)

Favorite of the month: Tied between In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan and Home Safe by Elizabeth Berg. Two very different books, yet both were extremely enjoyable to read.
