I can't believe what a terrible month June was for my reading pile! Realistically, I only read 2 books the entire month (Jim Butcher's Storm Front and Mr. Wooster Traveling on a Whim, which isn't even from my own library - I read it in B&N one evening). I finished Stewart O'Nan's Songs for the Missing on June 1, so I don't really count that, and I read the first Asterix the Gaul graphic novel, and that was so short I don't feel right counting that either!
I've been reading both Fablehaven and The Awakening for the better part of the month, and haven't been able to finish either of them. The Awakening was my 1001 Book Challenge book for June, and I did finish it this morning (via audio book), so I'm still counting it for June.
I'm hoping that July will go a little better.
Now, for the pleasant surprise. I just wanted to pass along the website for the Gutenberg Project. The Gutenberg Project has just about any classic book that is in the public domain on their website in ebook form, but today I discovered that they also have audio files for some of the books online as well. I was able to finish "reading" The Awakening today while at work by listening to it on my computer. And it is completely free. I'm enjoying listening to Howards End right now, one of my favorite books.
I just thought I'd pass it along in case some other people could take advantage of it as well.
April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!
