So. Yeah. I might have not been very successful writing reviews after getting caught up on outstanding ones, but I had a fabulous reading month. I finished thirteen books in August. If I keep up that pace, I might make a dent in my outstanding review copy pile! The rest of the month is a bit of a blur. The three of us took a long weekend and went boating up north for a few days. We came back to face Holly’s “choreography camp” and the beginning of regular poms practices. I don’t even want to know how many hours I spent picking up and dropping off Holly for three weeks. It was a bit too much, and I enter September so far behind in my own work. Thankfully, Holly starts school on Wednesday, so we can get back to some semblance of a regular schedule. Plus, with dance relegated to the evenings, Jim can help out more than he could in August. September is going to be a busy month with three home football games for Holly and a trip to Ames, Iowa to visit Connor for Jim and me. Add to that budget season, more dance, Holly’s sophomore year of high school, and budgets for Jim. All we can do is take it one day at a time and make good use of the few moments of freedom we find.
Hosted by Kathryn from Book Date, “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?” is a weekly event to share what we’ve read in the past week and what we hope to read, plus whatever else comes to mind. Here is what I read the week ending 2 September 2019. To learn more about each book, click on the book cover!
