Oh my, that is an impressive list of books up there. One might think that I did nothing but read last month. Sadly, one would be wrong… Also, I know that there are two covers missing but they were online short stories that went along with the Black Wings’ book and there were no covers to post here. I also did not post reviews for each one of the Star Trek comics. I kind of felt that there wasn’t any point really. They are only 21-30 pages long and are the continuation of an ongoing story so it wasn’t like my opinion of them was going to change much. What I wrote for the first comic could be applied to them all. While I enjoyed them I don’t think I am going to be going out of my way to add more comics to my reading diet. If I come across one that I find interesting, probably another Star Trek one, then I’ll read it otherwise I’m not going to become a collector. In all actuality, I think they are overpriced at $4 a pop for a 20 some odd pages of story… I know the graphics are fun but I don’t find myself focusing on them I just want the dialog. Two audiobooks listed up there, three short books under 190 pages and a DNF. So while my month of reading might look impressive it really isn’t. Put me nine books away from my reading goal for the year, though!
June and July are busy months at the library and at home so I’m not going to try to sweat it if I don’t get a ton of reading done. It has been nice to get some much put-off projects done to the property so while we are in the mood we will get some work done at home. I do hope to get some reading done because I do feel this urge that I’m not reading enough. It just feels like there is something that always needs to be done. I need to remember that I need to relax too. Perhaps tomorrow I will be able to sit down and get into my current read which is the end of a series I follow. It has a great start but when I sit down to read in the evening I find myself too tired and just want to go to sleep.
