Hello everyone…I can’t believe it’s September! 2012 seems to be flying by. I like September because starting back at school is quite exciting and it’s my birthday! Also, the Autumnal weather is a favourite of mine. Anyway, in August I really enjoyed the Olympics, a holiday to Majorca and brilliant results. It has been great but I am ready to go back to school and have some structure returned to my life!
August was a great reading month for me, but not quite as good as last year…there was just too much going on!
Here’s what I read in August 2012:
Harry Potter à L’École des Sorciers – J.K. Rowling
This is great as I aim to read at least three books every month. This was the same number as I read in July. Also, my target of at least one classic every month was fulfilled in August by Dracula.
Challenge Progress in August 2012:
Really good progress in all the challenges this year.
Currently In Progress:
Currently in progress (as of yesterday) is Middlemarch by George Eliot. I read one page late last night and then put it down as I was exhausted…I just hope this isn’t an indication of how I will respond to all 800+ pages of it!
Books: The next three books on my TBR shelf are The Girl who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest, Macbeth, and Cloud Atlas. Middlemarch is so vast that I very much doubt I read anything else this month…and maybe next too!
Challenges: Middlemarch will count for all 3 and Macbeth will count for 2 challenges.
Just though I would mention that it has been 6 months since I started blogging! That is shocking – I still feel very much like a newbie and I would just like to say thank you to all subscribers/readers/commenters for your insight, support and welcome; you have all made book-blogging a very enjoyable experience for me, which is what I hoped for when I started out back at the start of March. Thank you all 🙂
