August books on my list. . . .

August books on my list. . . .

August 1, 2016 2016, books on my list . . . 2

These are the August books on my list. I keep a list of all the books that I might want to read and then each month take the books for that month to post on my blog. I don’t buy all the books (not during the month they’re released at least)–since I already have way too many books to read and some of the new books are expensive. I’m trying to stick to a budget. But the list I make each month helps me not forget books. The Goodreads links help me keep track of these books. And I hope people reading my post may find some new books, too!… Read more »
