This was a busy month at work. I am generally pleased with the amount I read. I am looking forward to my summer vacation beginning a just over a week. I really hope to whittle down the TBR stack. My goal is to read a book a day for the days I am on vacation. I have 85 days from the last day of this school year until the first teacher workday of the next one. I read 85 books last summer. I hope to do better this summer.


  1. Wow, you had a great month! Most of those books are on my tbr list!

  2. What a great Summary Kathy! Well done.
