Project Read All The Books: June Recap

Hello July…goodbye June! Summer Reading is almost over folks! We only do a 6 week program at my library, so we will wrap everything up on July 16th. Only 2 more weeks…I can make it!

If you went to Vegas for ALA Annual Conference…I hate you. No…well just a little. While everyone was out in Las Vegas living it up, I went to Washington DC for a short visit. It was my first trip to the Library of Congress, which was beautiful. I have always been a huge fan of Thomas Jefferson so I felt extremely privileged to see his collection and the mark he left on America through books.

Now on to the books for June. According to my Goodreads I read 18 books in June. Only 7 of them were from the TBR bookcase though.

Count as of May: 120 TBR books

Read: 7

Added: 11

Current Total: 124

Here are the 7 books I read from my TBR bookcase: 
The Prince by Tiffany Reisz
Never Love a Highlander by Maya Banks
The Great Escape by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Delicious by Shayla Black
Rogue Stallion by Diana Palmer
Twin of Ice by Jude Deveraux
Circle of Deception by Carla Swafford

I really need to do better. If you are wondering where the 11 books came from I can explain that. I went to another local Romance Writers of American Chapter Luncheon – where ELOISA JAMES was speaking! She did an amazing job and I had a wonderful time. I ended up with 10 books from there. Also, my sister gave me an autographed copy of Hillary Clinton’s new memoir, Hard Choices.

Goal for July: 8 TBR books

I have a new way to manage the TBR pile - I just went through the book cupboard (behind closed doors) and pulled out 50 books to take to a friend's 50th birthday tomorrow ... she's an avid reader too. It went so well, I'm going to do that more often until the bags and bags of books are dealt with.

I was surprised as I read blurbs to realize I had actually read almost every book I gave away. When? And by the way, the cupboard was still doubled up in rows, but not triple-rowed, and I didn't have to shove mass markets sideways across the tops of the hardbacks. It was an incredible feeling to just pick out 50 decent books and move them on to someone else. (Okay, a few were dregs, and a few were excellent, but most were just decent). Harder I think to pick out three to give to a friend than 50.
