Comments for August in Review

August in Review: 08/31/08

Last month I said I would aim for 31 reviews for August after burning out in July. I didn't listen to myself. I came in at two under last month's high of 45. I am still trying to gear my reviews down for September and am still aiming at only one per day.

Most of my reading this month was in the form of short stories, divided evenly between the Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction and American Girls About Town. The F&SF reviews are an ongoing project that I started last year; I will be finishing my reviews of American Girls About Town in September.

booklogged

That looks like my year end review - 45 books in one month is amazing!

Pussreboots

Forty-five was the most I ever managed to review in a month. Frankly it was too much. Too much stress for a blog that's done for fun.
