I think I should be able to read at least two books this month....that are not kids' books! :D

I'd like to relax and do not set any goals :)

>3 Amaryllys: Haha! How about a goal of relaxing with a book and a cool summer drink?

I have one more Robertson Davies book to read before the Canada Days release challenge and I want to read another ABC book in June. That's the minimum goal; I'm hoping to get a few more books of MTBR as well.

Finally got keys for my flat so will be getting stuff out of storage - this includes many of my TBR books here. So I am going to go for 6 this month.

Well I have met my minimum goal for June i.e. one more Robertson Davies book and one ABC book. The Robertson Davies was not actually the one I planned on reading when I posted that goal. I planned on reading Davies' last novel The Cunning Man but then I found a copy of The Manticore in my pile of unregistered books and I decided to read it to complete the Deptford Trilogy. I may get to The Cunning Man soon but since I never specified which book I would read I figure that The Manticore works. I also read Get Shorty which I got through the Mystery and Thriller VBB last year. I was sort of reluctant to read it because I heard mixed reviews of it but I ended up quite liking it. I also got another book from the TBR mountain read Extraordinary People, the first of the Enzo files book. So I'm declaring a success on my goal for June.

Progress Report! Haha!

My goal was to read at least two books this month. Well, I've already read one so I'm halfway there. Here's my BC journal entry on that one:

In defense of this author whose novel I didn't care for all that much, I did previously read a book of his short stories. I thought those were done extremely well although they were on the dark side. I'm also happy to add that this author is Canadian, I was hoping to read more books by Canadian authors after my trip to Ontario, Canada, last year in July. It's odd that we in the US are not exposed to the writing of more of a variety of Canadian authors. Most Americans are hardly aware that we even have another country adjacent to us on the north. Bah!

I will probably complete my goal...but we'll see as the month draws to a close. :)

>6 soffitta1: I hope you were successful with your goal!

>7 gypsysmom: I also have a copy of The Cunning Man sitting on my shelf. I don't think I'll manage to read it for the Canada Days challenge but I did finish a couple of other Davies books for it.

>8 SqueakyChu: It's nice that you are seeking out more Canadian books. Happy Canada Day to everyone, by the way! I've not read anything by this author, but I'm already taken by the protagonist's name Cohen Davies since two of my Canadian heroes are Leonard Cohen and Robertson Davies. :)

I completely failed at reading any of my ABC books in June, but I did finish my roundabout book and I also read and registered a few of my own to release.

>11 SqueakyChu: Kids' books are great. I miss reading to my own children now that they are grown-up

>12 mathgirl40: I missed it, too, but now I get to read to my grandchildren! :D

>13 SqueakyChu: I'm looking forward to that stage, but it may be a few years away for me. :)
