I ended up reading a lot of books this month, compared to most previous months this year, as I was trying to participate in my library's summer reading contest for staff. This involved reading 8 library-owned books between June 4 and August 4, and since most of June was taken up reading a book the library did not (yet) own (With the Light) and The Dragonbone Chair, that meant getting at least seven more read during July. I still wanted to get through my shelves of "to read" books here at home, so I picked out a stack of books from my home collection that the library also owns--which proved to be more difficult to compile than I thought it would be, and resulted in my reading several literary classics for the first time.
