*Kathyrn over at The Book Date has created a Month in Review meme for those who put together these monthly posts. From now on, I'll be linking my post up each month...Thanks Kathryn for putting this meme together!!!



  1. What a great reading month you had! Hope the foot is going well :)

  2. Wow good job on reading so many books. Sorry it was because of the foot injury. Hope that's feeling better soon.

  3. Yes that stress fracture must have thrown you for a long read! Sometimes when it is enforced like that it is not so much fun, however much we dream about it when we are fit and able and have so many things to do. You read heaps though and you must be well on schedule.

  4. Sorry to hear about your foot. I hope you get better soon!

    Here’s my August Monthly Wrap Up!
