Well, this was a bad month for reading. I only read 11 books, which I think may be my slowest month ever, but as I’ve mentioned recently I had a lot of family health problems with my dad which didn’t leave a lot of time for reading (I mainly just wanted to sleep). I was doing pretty good about keeping up with the books off my TBR, not exceeding what I bought this month, until recently when I found a used book store and just couldn’t help myself. I did however, read 9 books off my own shelves compared to the 5 last month.

This month’s goal is another 10-15 books off my shelves, less buying (which could be hard because there’s a library book sale coming up), and hopefully I will exceed the 10 I read for this month as well. I’m hoping to FINALLY start working again after six months of unemployment, which will also decrease the amount I read I’m sure.
