June was somewhat busy, as I was also preparing for a co-workers retirement party at work. I managed to complete 4 books towards the readathon, and I had pledged 4. So I at least completed my goal. However, I could have read more, but picked up a gook I ended up DNFing, and two others…

July TBR

July TBR

I’m going to try something a bit different in July. I love Fantasy books, but I seem to be striking out there lately. I read a book and yet don’t really want to read it. I used to read more variety of Fantasy and Mystery, but then somewhere focused wholly in on Fantasy. For July,…

May 2022 Wrap Up

May 2022 Wrap Up

May has been a bit stressful from work stuff. In fact I was working some “overtime” the last week or two of May, even though I seem to be in a lull of stuff to do for the projects I’m responsible for. I put “overtime” in quotes because I’m salaried, so I don’t really get…
