It’s been a while since I did a Reading Roundup post. There are a lot of books to fill you in on. Most of them are Roald Dahl books from my collector’s box set (and they are all short, sweet, and fun books), but there are a few thick books, too. I did a lot of reading in August, again, because most of the Roald Dahl books took a day or two to read. But, I only finished one book this month. I’m halfway done with another–What About Faith by Robert L. Millet. I’ll probably finish it by the end of the week.
Holy cow I read a lot this month. I don’t know if you noticed, but I didn’t post a Reading Roundup last month–I didn’t read a single book during the month of June…well, no. I read one book but didn’t finish it in time. But this month, I read quite a bit. Granted, I read a lot of very easy 5th-grade level YA books. But, that’s because I’m desperately trying to finish reading all my classroom books before we move in a few weeks so I can pack them all up!
Hooray! I was able to read four books for this month’s Reading Roundup. Yes, two of them were books I read in less than 36 hours each…but still! That just means I really am weeding down my YA bookshelves! And, sadly, there were a few disappointments in this month’s set of books.
So much for focusing on my bookshelves for the reading roundup. Haha. Last time we went to the library to get books for Rhys, I decided out of the blue to look at the YA novels to see if anything caught my eyes. A few things did, so I grabbed them. Plus, I had to read a book for my church’s book club.
But, what surprised me, even more, is that Justin spent almost every night reading a big, long fantasy adventure book called Theft of Swords. He had wanted to read it for a long time–friends said he would love it. Many, many, many, many months ago, he bought it. Slowly, but surely he made his way through it, the majority being this month. I can’t tell you how sexy it was to see my husband who hates reading do nothing but read in the evening! My dream of having my husband and I read in bed together came true! He finished and now has bought the second book.
Just goes to show you, “The only people who don’t like reading are those who haven’t found the right book yet.”
I read four — FOUR — books this month for Reading Roundup. Granted, I read the last 20-50 pages of three of them yesterday!!!! But still! One book was a Bendon Junior Classics abridged classic, one was a library book, one was a Christian book I got for a review, and one was a book club book.
