First of all… I failed my book-buying ban for July. I made it so far into the month without buying books, then broke on the 25th. Though, doing the math, I did make it 28 days without buying a book, so that counts… right?
I didn’t read as much as I thought I would this month, though that’s because I hit an eleven day reading slump which was torture. I kept looking at my TBR cart with books that I really want to read, but the desire to pick them up was just not there. I wanted to read all of the books and none of the books. To me that’s the worst kind of reading slump.
As far as a book haul, I was gifted quite a few books this month, which is why there are so many. I’m not mad though, because books. Who could ever be mad at getting a lot of books in a month? Hopefully there will be a little more control in August, but I make no guarantees.
