Hello friends! As you may remember, I introduced the Bookmark Lit Bulletin earlier this month as a mid-month update. Since then, I’ve decided it makes sense to condense my monthly book haul/update posts with the Bookmark Lit Bulletin. Now, you’ll see a post like this on the 15th of the month and on the 30th/31st of the month. The Book Haul piece will only be in the end of the month segment.
What a great month of books. Most of my books were rated very high! My lowest rating was three stars and that was only ONE book. I got so much reading done in August, it’s been amazing. Bout of Books really helped me in that regard. Reading 6 books in 7 days was crazy and so, so fun. I was able to stop by my favorite used book store, Annie’s Book Stop, up in Wells, Maine, during my (short) family vacation to Kennebunk. I didn’t find as many books as usual, but still managed to walk away with a few! This has been my first full month with this blog and I’m super grateful to the people who started following me. I’ve enjoyed getting to know some of you and hope we can partner on some features in the future.
I wish I spent a little more time outside enjoying the summer and going on walks, but my boyfriend and I have just been so lazy! Since we’re moving soon (less than a week!!) to an apartment with a cute little patio, I plan on spending a lot of time outside drinking coffee and reading. We have to get packing, though, because it’s coming up sooner than we realized. Aside from the moving, work has been a bit crazy lately. I work in a recruiting firm for engineering and technical types of jobs, and we’ve been so swamped with requests. I’m single-handedly working on filling 8 positions at one company! It adds a lot of stress and I’ve been very unfocused lately, but I’m hoping the changing season will make me start fresh.
