End of August Progress Report

Another month has come and gone. I am a huge fan of summer so August is a particularly painful month for me to see slip away. Here in Utah, September is still fairly warm but I always equate September to the beginning of a new school year and thus, the end of summer. This week has actually been down in the 70's during the day and 50's at night so it's starting to feel like fall. My husband is reveling in what he calls the start of 'hoodie weather'. That's perfect for him, he stole my only decent hoodie and wore it to work one day last spring so now it's all dirty from the construction site and I have to go buy myself a new one. Apparently I'll have to make sure it's girly enough that he won't 'borrow' it.

But I'm getting off topic. August was a good month for me. All month I felt like I was dragging myself through books. Several took me longer than planned but I still managed to read 8 list books this month. SO I guess I wasn't going that slow after all.

This month I've read



Wow, I feel accomplished! It was a good month. I even squeezed in a non list book for some fun, light reading.

I have now read 33 books from the list, only 968 to go. The list is now 3.29% complete.

Here's hoping I can keep up this pace.

Haha, that's awesome that you're related to Wolsey! My husband is always bragging that he's related to Ben Franklin but it's only by marriage and forever ago. lol.

I'm not sure I prefer one time period over another with my reading habits. I do like the Victorian period - thinking Dracula, Heart of Darkness, all things Jane Austen, Dickens, G. Elliot...and on and on. So, I guess I like to read books set in/from that time period.

I also like stories from the 1920s-1940s. The Great Depression to WWII.
