June: I had my first trial (hung jury). I moved apartments (pain in the behind). I read a few books (five). I thought about books I want to read in the next couple years (and made a list). I half-wrote several blog posts that I need to finish (I will!).
5 books total
3 fiction 60%
2 nonfiction 40%
4 female authors 80%

Based on my rate of reading this year, it’s not looking like I’m going to meet my goal of 100 books. I guess there’s always the chance I read 21 books in one month like I did last December, but work is keeping me so busy that I seriously doubt that’s going to happen. I have read some really good books this year, including three in June that were really, really good. I rated both Ceremony and The Hanging of Angelique five stars, and Anthony Bourdain’s latest book, Medium Raw, a surprising 4 stars. I definitely recommend all of those. Hey, it’s quality, not quantity, that counts, right?
How’s your year in books so far?
