August 2016 Monthly Reading Review


Another August packed up and back in the suitcase. It lasted a long time in some ways, and then was gone in a flash in others.

I read the following titles (with links to blog posts about said book where there is one):

Grunt – Mary Roach  (2016)

The Bottle Factory Outing – Beryl Bainbridge (1974) (no blog post)

Homecoming – Yaa Gyasi  (2015)

Blackass – A. Igoni Barrett  (2015) – read this one two times. (That good.)

Total number of books read in August: 5

Total number of pages read: 1,308 pages (av. 262).

Fiction/Non-Fiction: 4 fiction / 1 non-fiction

Diversity: 3 POC (all from African continent: Nigeria and Ghana). 3 women.

Library books vs. books I owned (and thus removed from the home abode): 4 library books and 1 owned book.

Plans for September include reading all Labor Day weekend, collecting some possible TBRs for the month ahead, and clearing some space in the bookshelves for the upcoming FOL book sale. (Be still my heart.)
