June 2011 Reads

I'm torn, because finishing 8 books in a month is really good, yet I feel like I'm barely reading.  I know my reading has gone down, heck 3 of those were audio books, and that makes me sad.  Yet, I'm a lot busier now so it's harder to get in the reading time. I even cut out a ton of tv, but that hasn't seemed to help much.  Oh well..still a great month though.

An average of 56 pages a day isn't too bad, especially in the summer when it seems the calender is hectic.

I'm impressed. I do well to get through a book in a month. Just can't seem to read for too long without falling asleep.

Veggiemom - when you put it that way, it does sound good. lol! My weekends earlier were just so freaking busy dong house projects. I hope that's settled down now though and I can relax in the pool and read.

Cozy in Texas - I keep falling asleep really fast at night too..and that's usually when I can get in some good reads.
