13 books in August. That's not too bad for a summer month, right?
4 mysteries, 3 yf type fantasy, 1 Virtual Book Tour, 1 book not finished, 1 urban fantasy, 3 historical/mystery/romance (all Deanna Raybourns... I read all three in like a day and a half), a couple of thrillers... a couple of Reader's Choice.
Not too shabby. Only 19 Reader's Choice to go... hmm. Maybe I should start really reading those.
No book club books finished this month... I'm still slowly plodding through the July/August book. It's good, it's just feeling hard to commit to.
No monthly possibilities either. They're still on hold. Through the end of eternity apparently.
Finished the Summer Reading stuff-- picked out our prize books on Saturday.
Boo got The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog, yea!
Mister got a Diego book with "e'pants" in it, so he's happy.
The adult choices were a bit slim. Several romances... no thanks. A couple of Patricia Cornwells... nah, I stopped reading hers a while ago. Too creepy and the characters are just not overly likeable people. Totally just my opinion, though.
I ended up with one called Dark Horse by Tami Hoag. Anybody heard of it? Hopefully it's good. We'll see. The problem with books I own is that they don't have a due date... so we'll see when I actually get around to reading it!
Dark Horse is a popular title. You put it in on Amazon and come up with all sorts of things.
That's not the cover I have, though. I have the hardback. That's the mass market paperback.
Which sparks an interesting question-- do you prefer paperback or hardback?
I'll buy either if the price is right, but when it comes right down to it-- I like paperbacks. They're easier to deal with. They aren't as heavy if I want to shove the book in my massive purse. They're easier to hold up if I'm reading in the tub.
How about you?
