I didn't read that much this month. And I didn't post that much although it felt like I had (I kept thinking about it ...) but one of the reasons for that was that I was doing other things! And one of those things was writing. And while my brain seemed agreeable to this, I didn't want to distract myself too much with new books.

Didn't stop me from buying a few new ones though.*g*
