July 2016 Wrap Up

 We had fun visiting the Natural History museum last week.

Summer is more than half over! I can't believe it!  July was an exhausting month.  We had family visiting on two different weekends and just a lot of stuff going on.

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
   -2 non-fiction
   -6 historical fiction
   -1 review book
   -4 library books
   -5 books I own
   -7 ebooks
