June Wrap-Up

Another month has zipped on by. I have been out of school for four weeks, and have just four weeks until I go back. Sigh. Already half of 2011 is over and gone. I managed to get a fair number of books read in June, with no end in sight to my overflowing TBR pile. Here's the rundown:

1. Once Upon a Time There Was You by Elizabeth Berg

2. Faith by Jennifer Haigh

3. Dogtag Summer by Elizabeth Partridge

4. Stories I Only Tell My Friends by Rob Lowe

5. The Bee Eater by Richard Whitmore

12. The Girl With the Silver Eyes by Willo Davis Roberts

9 books were middle grade/YA 18 were adult

6 books were non-fiction 21 were fiction

9 books were written by male authors, 18 by females

6 books I owned, 21 were library books

1 book was read on my Kindle

So far in 2011 I have read 161 books, well on my way to reaching my 300 book goal. However, I know that with school starting and the holidays I don't necessarily read as much in the second half of the year. I'll just have to read when I get the chance and try to get through as many books as possible.
