It's Monday! What are you reading? 09/28/2015

Ugh. I'm reading nothing, you guys. Nothing. I haven't finished a book since mid-August. I've dabbled. I've started a few books. I've grazed. But nothing is sticking.

Worse than that? The way I'm feeling about this slump:

Blerg. I'm writing this post to let people know that even though I'm not blogging or reading I'm still out here. I'm draggy, apathetic, and slumpy, but I'm still here.

Tell me what you're reading. Tell me about the amazing books in your life. Inspire me!

Monthly Wrap-Up: July 2015

Here it is, August already. Have you noticed how the time zips by faster with every year? Perhaps you've also noticed that I sound more and more like my grandmother every day?

How was July for you? Here's how it looked for me:


A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee


The Oregon Trail by Rinker Buck


I normally wouldn't include children's books in my monthly wrap-up. I don't read them often, for one thing. But I read these five very deliberately. They are new to the bookstore and I wanted to be familiar with them for when customers ask for recommendations. Each one is adorable and most have a fantastic message for kids (and parents!).

Heather Has Two MommiesRed: A Crayon's StoryWhat Pet Should I GetThe Day the Crayons Quit, and Meet the Dullards. You can't go wrong with any of these.


Favorite Fiction: Did You Ever Have a Family

Favorite Nonfiction: Oregon Trail (Yes, it was my only nonfiction. It was also endlessly fascinating.)

How was July for you? Did you have a clear favorite for the month? I'd love to hear about it!
