Today is Labor Day, which in my mind is the last day of summer. We will still have plenty of warm weather in the coming weeks, but the days will get shorter and it won't be long before it's dark when I get home from work. Each season has its benefits (and detriments, as exhibited by today's current temp of 92), but I will miss the lazy evenings and sitting out on the porch, enjoying a glass of wine with my husband before fixing dinner.
Anyhow, to my reading. August was another decent month with regard to quantity and quality. There was only one disappointing book in the lot, but I finished it nonetheless. A couple were ok, but not great and a few were very good. I certainly can't complain, although I didn't stick to my goal of reading my own books. All but one were borrowed, which is a huge change from the past seven months. Maybe I'll do better in September.

Triple Dog Dare Challenge - Completely failed this month, but I don't care. I spent the first half of the year reading most of my own books and decided this month to read some new releases that caught my eye.
