June has been another great reading month... I'm definitely on a roll this year! I mostly stuck to my reading plan but more library holds came in than I was expecting, so I didn't get to listen to Dust Tracks on a Road or read the latest Shelf Subscription, Revival Season.

Summer reading plans//
I'm keeping it simple this summer. Since we will be away from home for at least the next couple of months, most of my reading will be either on my kindle or audio.
I'll choose a couple of books from this list to read for Paris in July. The rest of the month will be devoted to my remaining library holds.
AUGUST & SEPTEMBER
Right now my plan is to read books already on my kindle. I've purchased so many daily deals over the past few years, and will finally setting aside time to read from my own digital library. Lately it seems like purchasing a book is the surest way to insure that I don't read it! You know how it goes once a deadline or due date is removed...
What was your favorite June book? Have you made any summer reading plans?
