For the Month: August

I’m back to school but had a good August in terms of reading. I’ve got hundreds of podcasts backed up because it’s been audiobook listening most of the time. Now that school’s in session, I expect it will fall off considerably.  I’ll do the best I can to keep some balance.

10 audiobooks/ 1 paper

For the Month: June

Foot surgery has put a monkey wrench in my summer plans!  I won’t be listening to audio books on any long walks but I can listen while I’m seated in a chair with my leg up, knitting or doing puzzles.   I haven’t had the concentration to read paper books since the surgery but have mostly been listening along. Here’s my little list.. .although the Gabaldon book was 50 hours long!


fiction 5/ non-fiction 1

audio 5/ paper 1

For the Month: November

Another small reading month, although one of my audio books was extremely long!  Can’t wait until I am off in December so I can read during break.

Once again, it wasn’t a very successful reading month… Not walking has really cut into my listening time.  My feet are almost healed so hopefully, I’ll be back to the pavement soon!

Here’s my little list:

3 audio/ 1 paper / 1 ebook

3 fiction/ 2 nonfiction


For the Month: July

Not much reading at all as I just got back from Madeira and there wasn’t much reading time.  (It was an awesome vacation!!)


Here’s my little list:

All audio books and all fiction. I’ve got quite a few paper books going right now.

For the Month: June


Schools out!!  I’m ready for a great summer of reading ahead!  I’ve read some pretty long ones this month which took quite a bit of time so the list doesn’t look long.
