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.
I simply want to read.
I'll more than likely occasionally post on here what I've been reading, and if there is something that really blows my mind, I'll probably have more to say about it and may write up a proper post, but for right now, things are going to be very quiet around here.
As always, happy reading!
2017 editI will continue to blog according to my health and ability, and connecting my posts thru Goodreads, so please be patient if things get quiet around here again this year. 2017 edit #2I am happy to report that my bone marrow transplant was a success and that I'm feeling more like myself everyday. That said, I'm going to try to start blogging a little more frequently, but please bare with me as I still continue to recover.
