August 2019 Yearly Challenge Update

 

I’m doing surprisingly well with all these challenges.  If you saw my early posts, you’ll know that I hardly ever signed up for yearly challenges.   It overwhelms me and I always forget to go back and update on each one.  But I wanted to push myself a bit this year and signed up for a few.

August 2019 Wrap Up

 

It’s September (and my birthday month)!   August went by really fast.  I was a bit busier than normal on the weekends, but I was still able to read quite a bit.  Especially when I think of how slow I was with two of the books I read.  I liked everything, but there were definitely some standouts.
