Reading Challenges:


I signed up for another reading challenge (Non-Fiction Non-Memoir 2012 Reading Challenge) and I completed another reading challenge (1st in a Series Challenge).

My thoughts on this month:

I didn't read as many books as I wanted to (I am one away from my goal!), but I'm still happy with the amount I read. I interviewed some great authors and Luca Forelli! :) All in all, I am really happy with what I accomplished this month.

Looking ahead:


Here is what I hope to accomplish in July...

I want to read at least 10 books in July - including:
2 eBooks
A book starting with the letter "E"
1 "Just for Fun" book
2 Non-fiction books


Now it's your turn! What did you accomplish in June, what do you hope to accomplish in July?
