Are you taking part in my 2013 Reading Challenge? It’s not too late to join in; the linky is closed on the original post, but you can always jump in on these monthly progress posts and let us know that you’re participating!
In July I read two books for my challenge. That’s right where I need to be to make my annual goal, but it still feels like a bit of a letdown, because that second book I finished? I was 75% done with it by the beginning of the month. It still took me to the end of the month to force myself to finish it. I should have bailed on it a lot earlier – it clearly was not one I was enjoying.
The other book, the one I started later but finished quickly and easily while I was still slogging along with the Donner Party? That one I liked well enough. Not sure if it’s a keeper, or if I’ll get rid of it to make more room on my bookshelves, but I’m not ruing the wasted reading time like I am with the Donner book.
Books read for the challenge in July:
- Katarina by Katheryn Winter
- Winter of Entrapment: A New Look at the Donner Party by Joseph A. King
