Comments for July in Review
July in Review: 07/31/09
I only went over my quota of review writing by one this month. My favorite books this month were all from the library: Bronte's Book Club, The Egyptian Box, Ramona Quimby Age 8 and The Postman Always Rings Twice. My least favorites were She and I: A Fugue, The Vicar of Nibbleswicke and Warrior from Heaven.
This month the hot topic among book bloggers was how we choose which books to review. There's concern among some that we book bloggers are only doing reviews for the free books. I have listed where the books came from for this month's reviews. While most of them were free, most were actually from the library.

Wow! I'm lucky to read 10 in a month. That's great that you have a lot of reading time. Personally, it doesn't bother me where a book comes from.

It doesn't bother me where books come from either for reviews. But I had readers express interest in that piece of data so I decided to include it.
I haven't always read as consistently or as fast as I do now and I doubt I'll always be able to keep my current pace. I'm just in a point in my life where I can read this much.

Your graphs look so organised... It sounds like you've had a great reading month! I'm just a touch envious of the amount of books you've read...

Thank you! I try to keep my reviews spread evenly across the different genres of books I read. The pie graph is my way of seeing how well I did in maintaining that balance.
