July 2018 Reading Wrap Up

All the Devils are Here: The Hidden History of the Financial Crisis - Joe Nocera, Bethany McLean At Your Request (Apart From the Crowd): An Apart From the Crowd Novella - Jen Turano Gaijin: American Prisoner of War - Matt Faulkner Mystic Park (A Finding Home Novel) - Regina Hart

The heatwave/drought is taking it's toll on me and my reading. It is really hard to concentrate on less than totally engrossing reads. I was also much more busy IRL than I thought I was going to be at the start of summer vacation and August looks more like the same. 

 

My participation in this summer's 24 in 48 was lacking, but I got a bunch of smaller stuff read and off/archived on my NOOK, so I am okay with participating very low-key. The trial run of a reverse Dewey was better. I finished off two books for July and started August reading, all in eight hours.

 

For COYER, I participated in the Christmas in July read-a-thon - I got 3 books done.
