During all of August I have been working and therefore didn’t have as much time for reading as I would have had otherwise. I did participate in the Bout of Books 17 readathon though, which was helpful. Eventually, I was able to read 4 and listen to 2 novels. In July, I read around 1600 pages. This month in August, I read around 1750. This is 150 pages more than last month. Hence I am happy with my progress. Sadly, none of these books were on my big Summer Reading Goals to-be-read.
