Monthly Round-up: June 2017

I’m pretty pleased with my start on the summer: I’ve read 7 books towards the 20 Books of Summer 2017 reading challenge. I still have a high daily page count to deal with, but it hasn’t gone up since the start of the summer. Not…

Monthly Round-up: November 2015

November is hectic every year. Due to many random events and much introspection, I spent more time writing than reading. I’m pleased with the amount of writing I accomplished, but I don’t have much to offer by way of reviews. Of the books I…
