Summer Reading, Year Two

I keep saying to myself that I want to start blogging again. But then I get distracted, or question my ability to actually write  Plus I'm 99% sure that no one actually reads what I write anyway. 

I've been reading a lot this summer (well, actually, a little bit before summer), and what I really should do is keep track of every book I've read with a little summary (like last year's post- Summer Reading 2011).  So here goes, from May 1, 2012 through September 6, 2012

Challenge: To read a book every 5 days. Originally it was a book every 3 days, but no. Not happening. As of July 22 I've read 14 with 4 in progress, so I'm about on target (should have completed 16.6).  To meet the challenge I have to read 26 novels.

EDIT: Today is September 5th. My "challenge" ends tomorrow. To meet my challenge I had to read 26 books. I have 31 completed, and 6 in progress! I'd say that means I met my goal!
