We have rounded the bend and are heading into home on this crazy adventure of ours. Are you having fun yet? I know I am! I am all about vampires these days, as I finished C.C. Humphreys’ Vlad: The Last Confession, started the latest Sookie Stackhouse novel and also started listening to Jim Butcher’s fourth Harry Dresden novel, Summer Knight. I am also assuaging my thirst for my high-brow literature with my slow progress on Michener’s Alaska. My current YA read is Courtney Allison Moulton’s Angelfire. I did say last week that when I read my own books, I do tend to lean towards those books which contain vampires. This many at one time is a little unusual for me, but I love every minute of it!
This week, I would love to hear how you are doing on your pledge.
Have you been able to keep to your pledged percentage? If you went for less than 100 percent, what is your August ratio of non-review to review books? What is your favorite non-review book you’ve read so far this month? How many more are you going to attempt to finish before the end of the month? Which one(s) are you most hoping to read/finish before next week?
Congratulations to Unfinished Person for winning last week’s prize pack!! Please contact me within 24 hours to let me know which two books and which of the two book marks you would like.

LOL! I have a book tour stop on September 1st. If I had gotten the book before August, I would have read it, but I didn't. Oh well.
BTW, congratulations!!!! I didn't get a respond within 24 hours, so you were the next random winner this week. Let me know which books and bookmarks you would like!
What? So even our leader has fallen. 😉 I can't believe it….(feigned shock).
My recent post Update on Read My Own Books Month — and Rango!
I need to read another review book before the end of month. I knew it was too good to last!
Oops, I read some review copies yesterday. I knew I couldn't last 😉 Glad to hear you are still going strong!
