August Reading Wrap-Up

August Reading Wrap-Up

Many milestones to report! My goal for August: This next month should be much better for reading so I'll go with 4. What a joke. I traveled to NY twice - once because my grandmother had a stroke and two weeks later for her funeral. This year is a nightmare. But...
