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!
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.
Sadly, I was only able to read one book this month for Reading Roundup, but it was a great one! Just like last month, I was again contacted by the LDS Church Historian’s Press to review a book. *I received this book free in exchange for a review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.* Even more than the book I got last month, I was so excited to read the book I got!
It’s a new year. I know a lot of bloggers have a list of books they want to read, already. I do too. It’s called, “all the books on my bookshelf that I own and have never read yet.” That was basically the same plan for last year, too. But, I love to include a library book now and then, or a book from Blogging for Books. I’ve even done some book reviews for Cedar Forts Publishing, which is a Mormon-owned (not Church-owned) publishing company. This month, I was actually contacted by the author or publisher of both books I read for Reading Roundup.
