Can totally understand that.

Also, I have surprisingly finished 3 books so far this month! Granted they have mostly been fairly short and easy reads. Or have been close to the end.
I should really start taking a book everywhere I go again. I don't have much time to read usually, but maybe on my breaks on the days I work Joann. It's only 15 min, but that's better than nothing.

Turns out the books I'm working on reviewing have a deadline sooner than I thought, so I'm only going to get the two done. Alas!

Finished My Friend Dahmer (graphic novel, got through it pretty quickly) and am reading The Skeleton Tree right now, an adventure novel with two boys who don't like each other shipwrecked on the Alaskan coast. It's another local author and having recently visited Alaska it's cool to read about some of the stuff, like the items that wash ashore from Japan.

Making up for my skimpy reading in June. ;). Need to tackle more shelf books though, maybe crack open another Russian novel.

..... The only reading I've been really doing lately is manga reading. ;_; But it's something, I guess...

I do want to read some books I've had, though! I keep meaning to. :x

Right now my books are all sprawled on my bed while I sort my bookshelf. I've decided to re-arrange things.

And now that I'm trying to send in my review notes my school email isn't working! Bah!

Also going to start whittling my collection down to the stuff I want to keep and what I can pass on or sell. Yay, money, but alas, books.

Blah. Need to get onto my other book review so my record doesn't falter. I'm going to finish one of these books before the end of the month! Got a list of 20 books to review (as many as I felt like) and only made it through one and a half because of how obnoxious some were to get.

Lol, if I start 3 more books, my list will be full and I'll just have to finish them all...
XD
What is wrong with me that I am uninterested in finishing books?

Still ekeing my way through The Skeleton Tree. I like it, but the heat here is not helping me get it finished, even if it is set in Alaska. Haven't actually started Chase yet, though I think I already put it in. Hopefully it will read faster. I'd like to have it done by the end of the month.

So one of the ones written by Herbert's son? (I think). I saw a bunch when they were starting to come out, but the original series itself I'm not sure I'm going to get into.

I'm tempted to swap my copy of Dune for one with larger print before I start reading it.

Finished The Skeleton Tree. I liked it. :)

Not sure about starting Chase yet.

I'm failing miserably on my efforts to clear some reading off my shelf.

Chase is done! Entertaining, but logic issues.

Deciding on if I want to start another book (John Dies at the End, probably) or finish one that is already on the way.
