Comments for August in Review

August in Review: 08/31/09

I've changed the way I read and review books. I am picking my books randomly from three different piles: "library" "review copies" and "personal/bookcrossing." August is my first month of doing it this way. I see that I didn't get as many review books reviewed as I have in previous months. I will work on balancing them better with the other two options.

I only went over my quota of review writing by one this month. My favorite book for the month is The Thirteenth Tale.
