A Month in Summary - June



After five great months of reading, I hit a huge slump in June. I picked up and discarded dozens of books, nothing grabbing my attention or calling out to me.  Other than audiobooks, I only finished ONE book!

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling (Borrowed - Audio) 3/5

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling (Borrowed - Audio) 3/5

Mountain Time by Ivan Doig - (Own) 3/5

Stats:

Triple Dog Dare Challenge - Well, I guess I stuck to my plan, since the two borrowed books were audios. Still didn't make much progress on my shelves unless you count the three bags of ARCs that I gave to a friend.
 

3 books
3 novels

2 childrens
1 new-to-me-authors 
1 print
2 audio
2 female
1 male
2 borrowed
1 from my stacks 

Favorite of the Month: Mountain Time by Ivan Doig

    1. Kathy, I have a feeling July will be much of the same, although not due to slumping, but rather just a busy month with travel and a houseguest.

    1. Kelly, July is going to be busy with a vacation and a houseguest, so I'll be thrilled if I finish ONE book! :)

    1. Ha! July is proving to be even worse, Iliana. But that's alright. If I had to choose between vacationing in the PNW and reading, travel would win hands down! :)

  4. I'm so with you!!! I can't read to save my life, lately, I haven't finished anywhere near the books I normally do; in fact, I think the total I've read would fit into two months of previous years. But, I've been giving permission to myself not to read, not to blog, if I don't feel like it. Here's to hoping we will soon find the most mesmerizing books soon! Plus, you're making me feel like reading Harry Potter! ;)

    1. Meredith, I can't read or blog to save my life, right now. I sat down a couple of hours ago to write a couple of blog posts and all I've accomplished is catching up on emails and responding to blog comments. Thank goodness this isn't a job in which I need to meet deadlines! I think this month will have a whopping ONE book on the list. But as I mentioned to Iliana, I'd rather spend a couple of weeks basking in the beauty of the PNW and surrounding myself with my favorite family members than reading a book. There will always be time to read later. Here's to winter! ;)
