Banned Books Week is almost upon us (September 22nd – 28th). This year, I want to actively participate in “highlight[ing] the value of free and open access to information” as well as show my “support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas“.
Just like that, we have finished two-thirds of the year. August has been beautiful weather-wise, and pretty okay reading-wise, too. I hope you were able to get some books knocked off your TBR, and if not, found at least one book you’re glad to have picked up.
And the year just continues to fly by. I’d be lying if I said I’m 100% sad about August’s speedy arrival because I’m [f]all about what comes after it (September), but I won’t get into that now.
Instead I’m looking back on my reading, blogging, and miscellany during the month of July. I’ve been in a strange reading place this summer, as I feel like I’ve read so much more than I actually have. I’m chalking it up to reading [too] many books at once – a habit of mine that has really intensified over the past couple of months. Nonetheless, I really enjoyed the books I read this month and am happy with what I managed to write here on the blog. So let’s get into it.
