Out With The Old: July 2014

Books Read:7
Books Reviewed:3
Favorite Book Read: The Real Boy by Anne Ursu
Favorite Post Written: Library Storytime

Reading is a huge part of my life and the library has made reading happen for me. I haven't always had money to buy books, but the library allows me to read an endless variety of books. This year I'm going to try a budget where I have to earn money through exercising and reading to buy books. I'm also allowed to use giftcards. I imagine I will still get quite a few books from the library this year. Otherwise July was a pretty slow month for posts on the blog.

I write this post today with some sad news. My high school guidance counselor passed away yesterday due to complications from Influenza A. It was a hard day to understand the world. I don't understand why he was taken so young and when he still has three young children that now don't have a father. I ask for prayers for him and his family.

In With The New: Goal #7

I'm participating in COYER ins 2015 and I would love to get my Kindle TBR pile down. I would also like to be active in this challenge through Facebook. The New Year's Read-A-Thon starts in a few days and I'm excited to get some reading done.


  1. Oh my thoughts go out to your guidance counselor's family! So sad to hear, especially leaving behind three young kids. So sad :(

    On a lighter note, so glad to have you on board for COYER and looking forward to the New Year's RAT!!

    1. Super excited for COYER to get going in full swing.
