June was by far the slowest Read Harder month to date. Only Sophia completed any challenges. My husband has been busy outside in the garden/hop yard, and I have been busy being distracted by the piles of books unrelated to this challenge.
July will be the month to buckle down on the challenge reading (at least for Sophia and I since I don’t anticipate my husband completing it). Sophia has only four books left to read, so hopefully she’ll finish it this month. I have placed hold requests for three books (Yes, Please! by Amy Poehler, The Orenda by Joseph Boyden, and The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes) and purchased a fourth (The Woman Who Thought She Was a Planet and Other Stories by Vandana Singh) with the goal of reading all four before the month is out.
Without further ado, our stats and books, color-coded to make it easier to know who read what:
Me 15/24 (0 in May)
My Husband 9/24 (0 in May)
Sophia 20/24 (2 in May)
