*Platypire Read-A-Thon* August Results

This was a horrible month for reading for me. I feel like I got nothing done. I didn't finish a single book that I had started when the month began, and now that we're at the end of the month, I have over twice as many currently started, and a very small fraction of my list actually read. Without further ado, here are my reading results.

So there you abysmal month for reading. This is the first time the read-a-thon has actually made me feel like a failure (although I would have felt like a failure for posting so few reviews anyway, this just makes it more obvious how badly I failed this month). I'm hoping next month will be much better, but we've just started 1st Grade homeschooling for my son, so it's quite possible it won't be, while we work out all the kinks of what homeschooling will entail for us. If any of the books I have listed sound interesting to you, I have linked all of them to Amazon, so you can just click on the title to check them out. - Katie
