And with that, the summer is over. By that, I mean August. By summer, I mean wash-out. Regardless, another month is over, and we’re another month closer to the end of the 2015 Reading Challenge. This month was much more productive in terms of the number of books read than the last few months – primarily due to spending the first week of August lounging by the pool in France.

Last month I set myself the target of reading six books during August, and I’m so happy that I exceeded that target – and I’m also really happy with the number of pages I read this month, which works out at 90 pages a day! I’m going to be a little more conservative for September, but I want to check off at least two more categories from the Reading Challenge itself (and read at least four books).
Thirty-three down, seventeen to go. (Forty-seven read)
