Month in Review: June 2013

Another month has come and gone...and as we are now halfway through the year, I realize I need to focus on my reading challenges. I am doing well in some, but haven't started a few. I guess I will have to be a little more selective in what I read moving forward.

I'm really getting the hang of the whole social media thing - specifically using twitter. I've come across some great blogs and bookish events that I might have missed otherwise. Of course, this does at times take away from my reading time, but I'm trying to figure out how to balance it all!


Here are my reading stats for June!
