Reading Wrap-up for August at Moonshine and Rosefire


Hello everyone out there and I hope that you all had a terrific reading month for yourselves. I am known as Rosefire around the Internet and this is my new personal reading blog. I originally posted my reviews over at my daughter's blog, Emeraldfire's Bookmark but am now in the process of transferring them all over to my own blog. My daughter makes blogging look like so much fun that I thought that I would try it out for myself! :)

Anyway, I started out August with 649 unread books lying around the house and ended the month with 644 books unread. All of the books that I acquired this month came from Bookmooch and Paperback Swap and a library book sale we went to on the 27th; I have bought books though the library book sale this month (50 cents for paperbacks, $1.00 for hardcovers. The money goes to help our library's upkeep and stocking some latest releases.) We generally try to go to the library once a month if we can.

Let me try to break down the influx for you:

Changes to the TBR pile 

Read from my TBR pile (Yes! I am a reading machine :))
- The A. B. C. Murders by Agatha Christie
- The King of Lies by John Hart
- Testimony by Anita Shreve
- Preacher's Girl: The Life and Crimes of Blanche Taylor Moore by Jim Schutze
- Storyville by Lois Battle

Added to my TBR pile (oh well, you win some and you lose some! Not too bad though, I suppose:))
Boneman's Daughters by Ted Dekker
Almost Sisters by Nancy Anderson, Leal Littke and Carroll Hofeling Morris
- Southern Women by Lois Battle
- The Spanish Bridegroom by Jean Plaidy
- Bright River Trilogy by Annie Greene
- The Return Journey by Maeve Binchy
- Where or When by Anita Shreve

Taken off my TBR pile and sent to a new home (Yay! Happy Dance! :))
- One True Thing by Anna Quindlen
- The Best of Friends by Joanna Trollope
The Black House by Paul Theroux
Godplayer by Robin Cook
Mutation by Robin Cook
Peter Lawford: The Man Who Kept the Secrets by James Spada

Well, there it is...the breakdown! All in all, a very good reading month for me. Here's a further breakdown:

Books Read: 5
Pages Read: 1,729
Grade Range: A+! to A!

So, there you go! The reading month that was August. I hope that you all had an equally good reading month; if not a little better. :) See you all next month! :)

Till we Meet Again, Glow Brightly as Moonlight

Hello and welcome to my blog. I'm a newbie as far as book blogging goes, having been blogging at my daughter's blog for only about two and a half years. Now it's time for me to get my feet wet on my own. Please be gentle with this blogger. Love to hear from you all. Have a great day! :)
