Wrapping Up July 2010
I cannot believe how fast July flew by. This year I’ve realized just how much of a summer person I am. The heat, the dryness, the sunshine – I love it all :) I’m trying hard not to think that too soon months and months of rain will be upon us.
Aside from the beautiful weather, July also brought some great reading. The Harry Potter Reread Project has been a great experience overall, and I’m sad that I’m coming close to the end of the series.
You may remember that a few months ago I decided I needed to go on a book acquisition ban. No buying books, no borrowing books. I started the ban at the end of April, and since the beginning of May I’ve only acquired 4 new books! I’ve been slowly reading down my TBR pile (the Harry Potter rereads have made this slower going than anticipated), but I’m quite happy with my progress. I’ve even relaxed my rules a bit and have started putting my name on hold lists at the library.
How was your July?
