We had fun visiting the Natural History museum last week.
Despite all the goings on, I had the best reading month I've had all year. I read 11 books! I am now at 45 books for the year and my original goal was 52. I know I will raise that goal at some point but I'm not sure how I'm going to raise it. I also hit my monthly reading goals. This month I wanted to read 2 books I own and 2 non-fiction books; I read 2 non-fiction books and 5 books I own so I'm really happy about that. I had planned to post twice per week on the blog but this past week I didn't manage to get two posts up. Oh well. I managed to post 13 times on the blog this month so I think that's decent.
For August, I plan to read 5 books I own and 3 non-fiction books. It's not always easy for me to consistently post twice a week on the blog every week and I don't want to put up garbage just to post something. So I think I'm going to just shoot for one post a week and if I get more than that, then I'm doing good.
My reading stats for July:
-11 books read
