I have not been able to make booktube videos lately and I definitely miss it ALOT.
But I have been keeping up with everyone's 30 day reading challenge and the booktubeathon awesomeness so that has been filling the void somewhat, lol.
There has been even more book accumulation, thrift store goodness and many a good cheap book as usual. (can't seem to go a paycheck without a little somethin somethin.
I totally failed at the 6000 page reading goal for the 30 day read (I was being very optimistic, lol) but nonetheless, good books were read and are still being READ so I supposed its not a complete fail.
My fiance, my son and I had one move planned (with family, until our move cross the country, which is coming up in 11 days!). BUT due to some unfortunate and stressful circumstances we have ended up moving four times in the past month:
Which needless to say took a toll on many things, one of them being reading, but still it was a good reading month nonetheless. :)
I hope everyone has been having an amazing month in reading.
I am SO ready to be back in my own space and to have ALL THE BOOKS back into their rightful place on my bookshelf.
I think I may need another book shelf at this point though.
I'm not very good at keeping up with blogs but I thought I would try this out since I will be unable to make videos for several weeks. There has been MUCH book accumulation happening over here :D Lots o great books from the clearance section of half price books and the thrift store (my usual book haunts) that have been purchased since my last booktube video.
While I'm off of youtube I'll be planning tags and book reviews to film and upload once I get back in the booktube swing of things in August! Unless I can manage to get past a half dozen family members and sneak in a video, lol.
On a very random note I decided to call one of my local libraries to ask if they ever hold library sales and (GASP) they advised that not only do they have such a thing but that it is ONGOING...they said its just a few shelves but none the less it made my little heart pitter-patter. :D
On a last note here, if any subscribers from booktube or Mercedes from MercysBookishMusings happen to read this post (for some reason, lol) I just want to say a big thank you to Mercedes for mentioning me in her video. So many of you came over to my channel and subscribed and for me it was so amazing and awesome. Thank you guys so so much :)
Have a wonderful day.
