What I Learned
That too much going on makes it very hard to read and blog. I was doing really well with everything, but now I am not on track anymore. I didn't even do my Week in Review posts for most of June, so that is sad. I am hoping July will be better, but it is hard to really say. I have also actually started rereading books! In June I finished The Time Traveler's Wife for the third or fourth time and at some point soon I will be finishing Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I have enjoyed the rereading. I hope to do some more in the coming months.
I also have been reading fantasy. And, the big, thick fantasy novels that I have been neglecting. Not paranormal fantasy or young adult. I have reconnected with authors like Robin Hobb and have started reading authors like George R.R. Martin. It is a lot of fun! I have also been using my eReader again, but I am disgruntled. I bought an e-book, it won't work on my e-reader, and I am annoyed that they still have not emailed to tell me what is wrong. E-books are expected to be instant. I would have been better off buying it in paperback!

Thoughts on July
No really plans. I have a couple books I started in June that I would really like to finish. I also have to read Dune for a read-along that you can learn all about on Stainless Steel Droppings. Other than that, we will see what the month brings...
What are your plans for your July?
