I read a bit

I can't believe July is done. Where the heck did the first seven months of the year go?

I dunno. But I do know that I managed to read a little bit this month. I finished four books, totaling 1,083 pages. That brings my total to 28 books for the year and 9,057 pages for the year. Not too bad.

So what'd I read? Take a look.

Lost by Gregory Maguire
Jarhead: A Marine's Chronicle of the Gulf War and Other Battles by Anthony Swofford
A Champion's Mind: Lessons from a Life in Tennis by Pete Sampras and Peter Bodo
All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten by Robert Fulghum

And I have exciting news. I actually get to dip into the pile of books I have that has been steadily growing over the past few months. Once I actually get the energy to read, I'm going to start reading Water for Elephants, which has been sitting on my pile for a year. Yes. A year. And before I actually purchased the book? I had checked it out from the library not once, but two times. And I still haven't read a page. But it's going to get read. I'll finish it in the next month if it kills me. Because I've heard it's good. From a lot of people.

You are quite the reader! Nice job! I think you will like Water for Elephants!

I'm excited to read Water for Elephants too.
I got a copy as well (though not as long ago as you did) and I'm glad it came up for the Babes' August book so I can dig it out of my stack.

Are you reading "Breaking Dawn" anytime soon!?

I think I'm number 100 in line for getting "Breaking Dawn" at the library. And no. I'm not kidding.

So it might be a little while before I read it. Unless I break down and buy it. Which isn't unheard of.

Did you like All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten? I read it a few years ago and was disappointed.

I've read All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten before. I like some of the pieces in the book, but overall, it's not one of my favorites. But I was looking for a quick read that didn't require too many brain cells to read. And that's exactly what I got.
