Get ready for Part 2. I refrained from finishing two more audiobooks today because one, I had a headache, and two, had some work to do which required deep focus. Welcome to all the audiobooks I read in July. Continue reading
I DID IT. I am on track for finishing my reading goal (100 books in 2019, displayed as 101 because of a DNF). I decided to break this month’s round-up into two entries because dear lord, I read so many things in July. Continue reading
