What I read in August...

I'm only slightly late in this post. Oops. Before I get to that I want to share a picture first

She looked so old to me. We were sitting on the stools and she grabbed a nectarine and just sat there reading her book with extreme concentration. She reminded me of myself to be honest. Perhaps she even learned the art of reading and eating from her mother. I so hope she always loves books.

Anyways August was another slow reading month for me. Such is life I suppose. Here's what I read

1.) Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand
2.) The Wife's Tale by Lori Lansens
3.) Midwives by Chris Bohjalian
4.) The Nanny Diaries by Emma McLaughlin 
5.) Night by Elie Wiesel

Total read this month: 5
Total Read in 2011: 66
Number of pages: 1626

You can see what I read in June & August here

Reading Goal Update: At the beginning of the year I had a goal of reading 150 books. It seemed really doable considering the amount I read last year. However what I failed to account for was full time employment and moving a couple of times. I'm still hoping to break the 100 mark but I really need to pick up the pace. Maybe I'll throw a few YA books into the mix (I love them but they're always really quick reads for me).

I love that picture of Emmy...she's such a beautiful little girl! She looks like she has a big secret.

You're doing a heck of a lot better than me in the reading department lol
