Reading in July

11! Woot, double digits. That hasn’t happened much in 2017, has it?

1 audio
2 middle grade fiction (gosh, I miss YA. I really need to reserve some.)
4 non-fiction

Still pretty boring. This has just not been my year for reading.

Reading in June

Gah, just seven. Here I thought I was doing so well, in June. Hah. (Sob.) Remember when I used to read like 250+ books a year? Yea, me either — it’s been so longgggg. Whatever.

1 was YA
1 was LGBTQish.

And… lol… that’s pretty much it for the categories of books I try to pay attention to.

What will happen in July? I don’t think we have any travel plans but the little girls are coming for a visit. And, work is probably going to start getting nutty and we have to do some work around the house to get ready for the foundation repair and… yea. HMPH. I need a #fakereadathon!

Reading in May

Too much travel and not enough reading. It didn’t help that the audiobook I checked out was not holding my interest. Whatever. June should be SLIGHTLY better… probably.

Total: 5

2 non-fiction
1 YA
1 LGBTQ

Reading in April

LOL Just 13 books during a #readathon month? I have to remind myself that the count is low because I didn’t grab a stack of picture/early reader books from the Cybils shortlist, like I usually do. So 13 books is GOOD. It’s very good! Gah.

Non-fiction – 9
Graphic novels – 1
YA – 2
Queer – 1
Audio – 1

Oy.

Reading in March

Oops. Well not really. I knew it would be a light month with two separate trips plus Michelle Belle coming to visit. Still. Eight total. Oy.

2 were audiobooks
2 were YA
NO non-fiction, sheesh

April will be better.

Reading in February

Another good reading month for me. Yay, reading!

16 total!

1 audio
1 graphic novel
1 YA (which was also the audiobook)
5 non-fiction

March is maybe going to be a little less successful… lots of travel coming up.

Reading in January

This was a pretty good month for reading, particularly since I was sicker than I’ve been in ages, for the first couple of weeks of the month. And, I started a new job. And, I did a lot of stuff that didn’t involve lying around and reading.

10 books total. Not bad, not bad at all. Really not bad when I look at what I read. I read some good stuff!

2 audiobooks
3 non-fiction
1 middlegrade fiction
1 that might or might not have been YA. (I don’t think it was, but I’m noting it just because)

Reading in December

Welp. 17 books for the month. Pretty darn good, all things considered.

11 were Cybils.
6 were non-fiction.
1 was an audiobook.

Ho hum.

Reading in November

Welp. Down to the wire. Whatever my overall goal was for the year, I’m not gonna make it. But, let’s look on the bright side — November wasn’t a bad month for me. Not bad at all.

Total Read: 11

Non-fiction: 3
Cybils Shortlist: 6 (mostly YA but some middle grade)

We are listening to the longest audiobook, ever. OMG so long… we may never finish it…

Reading in October

It was another one of those weird months — this one was exceptionally weird since I traveled three times and that hasn’t happened in forever. And, of course, I don’t read much while I’m traveling. So. I’m going to need another couple of #fakereadathon days. (Speaking of which, we missed #readathon again. Sigh. It’s been a rough year. Next year will be better!) Onward…

Total read: 8

5 were from the Cybils shortlist
4 were graphic novels
1 was an audiobook
1 was non-fiction

Sheesh.
