Count from the library = _8_, 1 purchased, 1 was my Audible credit, 3 were loans/borrows/gifts? that I’ve had for a decade plus. yea, so?
My favorite was One True Thing, but I must say I am glad to finally have read The Diary of Anne Frank.
I would say a lot are 4 star reads. I DNF’d one due to mood and time and lack of intense interest? One flip-through skim and realization not for me for a 2 slice.
I visited Newfoundland. I visited space colonies. I was in PA near NY, in Italy, on a train in England, Martha’s Vineyard to Boston NEW England, LACA, and a poetry book referencing Sarah and Hagar of the Old Testament connected to slavery times of the good ol’ US of A. And Amsterdam the Netherlands. That’s a big span of time and territory.
Three nonfiction, one poetry. 2+3+4+5 in series (what?!) One for my Classics Club 50. Three from my shelves for YEARS. Only one book by a man. That man worked with Jess Walter so that was an interesting unexpected connection to what is appearing to be a 2021 Jess Walter Project Year. Two translated works. Way too much Murderbot.
None. But watch out for next month!
This summer month was another FULL on #20BooksofSummer! I still have 6 to read by the list I hoped to read for that challenge but also squeezing in one more for the TOB SummerCamp which I apparently am going to buy because my hold position hasn’t moved off 3rd in line.
Pie? Only three books mention pie. The Day the World Came to Town of course had pie! Neighbors helping strangers bringing food?! somebody was going to bring a pie. One True Thing is about family and if Thanksgiving is an event, pumpkin pie will be dropped onto the menu. Anne Frank had a pie reference, too, which was endearing to me.
I made Cherry Pie with Almond Crumble for the 4th of July and Peach Pie – for my grandnephew’s baptism bbq last weekend.
What was YOUR favorite book of July?
