June Wrap Up (and goal check in!)

 2015 is half over, can you believe it?!  It has gone by so fast. I had a slow reading month in June but I think that was because I spent most of my time knitting and planning Julia's birthday party.  I was furiously knitting little doll blankets for her birthday present and that took up most of my reading time.  I only got one done but am hoping to finish the second one soon (I kept messing up and having to start over!).  I still met my goal for the month of reading 6 books so I still feel pretty good about it.

 Here are my June numbers:
-6 books read
   -1 non-fiction
   -1 historical fiction
   -1 review
   -2 library books
   -3 books I own
   -3 ebooks

What I read in June:

1.) Make You Remember by Macy Beckett
2.) The Grip of God by Rachel Hazell
3.) Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling
4.) American Ghost by Hannah Nordhaus
5.) Season of Storms by Susannah Kearsley
6.) Prince of Fire by Daniel Silva

Since the year is half over, I thought I would review my goals and see where I stand for the year.

Here are my numbers for the first half of 2015:
-44 books read
   -5 non-fiction
   -18 historical fiction
   -9 review
   -21 library books
   -14 books I own
   -16 ebooks

I'm really happy with my numbers so far.  I'm more than on track to reaching 80 books read for the year.  Two of my big goals this year were to read more non-fiction and less review books.  So far this year I have already read as many non-fiction books as I did in the whole of 2014.  And only 20% of the books I've read this year have been review books.  My goal was to stay under 25% so that makes me really happy.

I do need to be reading more books I own.  The number above includes books I own that I re-read, books I purchased this year, etc.  It doesn't include very many books I owned prior to this year.  I really need to start picking from my shelves first.  I guess I have something to work on for the next six months!

Sorry for all the words!  I hope the first half of 2015 has gone well for you all!  How are you doing on your goals for the year?
