Month in Review: August 2020


It was another good reading month and I am continuing to be content staying home and reading my books. I am looking forward to the cooler weather, though I do still plan on reading outside as much as I can - I'm totally fine wearing a sweater and scarf! As long as it's not raining or snowing, I will be outside either on the deck or my front porch, with my books, my dogs and my drink of choice. I'm hoping that with as much reading as I am getting in, I can make more of a dent in my unread shelf...I kind of went on a little buying spree this past weekend for Independent Bookstore Day!
