July 2018 - Monthly Wrap-Up

July 2018

July has been quite the month for me.  I was on vacation from work during the week of July 4th so the month got off to a fantastic start.  My daughter spent the second week of the month in West Virginia with a friend and then came back to start the required summer band camp for her high school marching band.  I had surgery to repair a hernia towards the end of the month and just returned to work yesterday after 2 weeks at home. 

I was really home for much of the month of July and I had thought that my reading totals would be up as a result. I was wrong since my totals were very similar to last months numbers.  I listen to audiobooks at work and those numbers were down for me in July but I did read a few more digital/print books than usual. 

I am linking this post to the Monthly Wrap-Up at Feed Your Fiction Addiction.

  1. Congrats on reading 17 books. That seems like a lot of books to me. I hope you’re healing quickly. Happy August!

    1. I had hoped to knock out a book a day while I was off. That was just a crazy thought though.

  2. It looks as if it was a good month for reading! I didn't do as well as I hoped but maybe this month will be good!

    1. I imagine my reading will slow down with the start of school and marching band going into full force. This will be my last year to deal with the craziness that is marching band.

  4. I noticed that I get less read when I'm on vacation or off my usual schedule, too. So many other things to do.

    Still, you have pretty respectable numbers there. Way to go!
    Hope your hernia is healed and wishing you a great August!

    1. I didn't really do anything else but I had a much harder time focusing on books than I had thought I would.

  6. Hope you're recovering from your surgery ok. Don't go lifting too big a book for a while!
    I'm doing chuckles August Authorfest this month so anticipating lots of shiny new authors :-)

    1. I have actually read a few print books lately but any big books will have to go on my Kindle :)

  7. 17 books is pretty awesome, but yeah, my numbers are higher when I am at work listening to books. I just finished Bishop this morning, and I am thinking I will love this series. It was a solid start for me. I wish there had been a little more to the ending, but at least we know the couple will be back in future books.

    1. I usually get though quite a few audiobooks during the month while I work. I just don't tend to listen when I am home a whole lot. I am looking forward to Bishop so I am thrilled to hear that you liked it.

  8. You have some great stuff. I've been reading some of the same things. :) My library purchased The Accidentals for me but I haven't gotten to reading it yet. Ugh.

    I hope now you are feeling better. I've got some the same books up for August also. Anne - Books of My Heart

    1. The Accidentals is a really great book, Anne. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

  9. I hope you are feeling better now after the surgery and had a good recovery. May August be a great month.

    I read Foundryside last month and loved it. :D

    1. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed Foundryside. It looks like a great read!

  10. That's interesting that your reading totals didn't really change. I would have thought it would have gone up as well but it does make sense that it didn't. I know the times when I've been home sick or injured I don't do much reading. Hope August is fantastic!

    1. I really didn't feel like doing much of anything some days which probably explains a whole lot.

  11. I hope you are recovering well. I had a week off in July and I can honestly say I didn't read much at all. I was doing other things. I plan on reading Bishop this week. I hope you enjoy it.

    I hope you have a wonderful August!

    1. The week that I was on vacation at home I didn't expect to do too much reading but I thought I would knock out quite a few books after surgery. I hope you enjoy Bishop!

  12. You did awesome! Hope your recovering goes smoothly!

  13. You still managed to read quite a lot of books! I am glad you enjoyed your holiday and hopefully that recovery from surgery is going well. Audiobooks are great to listen to when you aren't up to reading many physical copies at the time.

    1. My audiobook reading was way down for the month. I found that I just couldn't focus on them while I was recovering from surgery.
