Weekend Update
September 2017 Reading Wrap-Up

September2017 Reading Wrap-Up

Well, this will be short because I apparently sucked at reading in September. I’m not sure why other than just life and work getting in the way over and over again. Blergh. I think I need to make a commitment to myself to set a week each month to read as if the Bout of Books was going on.

I only finished two audiobooks and one graphic novel in September. In print I’m reading and enjoying The Romanovs 1613-1918 by Simon Sebag Montefiore but just not getting enough time so spend with it. I’m going to see if I can turn off distractions better this week and get back to my long lost reading routine.

Here’s what I read in September

Graphic Novels and Comics

The One Hundred Nights of Hero by Isabel Greenberg

 

Audiobooks

The Painted Queen by Elizabeth Peters and Joan Hess narrated by Barbara Rosenblat

The Western Star by Craig Johnson narrated by George Guidall

 

Hope you had a great reading month in September. What was the best book you read last month?
