August Wrap-Up

So long, August! I'm taking my boots out of the closet and going to find a pumpkin spice latte. I think I'm feeling a bit of mommy regret though, where you think "I should have taken them to the beach!" or "We should have gone to the park more often." But I know that there will be other summers and there is lots of fun to be had in fall and winter. Kindergarten is just around the corner and we are thrilled (David) and sad (Mommy). Do you have any traditions to get you ready for the fall?

Books reviewed in August: 10
Pages Read: 2,899; 10 hours of audiobook
Fiction/Non-fiction: 8/2
Female authors/male authors: 3/7
My books/library books: 1/9
Lindsey's favorite book in August: The Illusion of Separateness 

Books reviewed with David: None....which is not to say he isn't reading up a storm! Current favorites include anything to do with Star Wars or Transformers, the Geronimo Stilton series, and Encyclopedia Brown. 

She's already hiding her face when taking pictures with Mom and Dad! Sigh...

What was your favorite book in August??


  1. It looks like you had a wonderful reading month in August, Lindsey. Congratulations! Nice to know that 'The Illusion of Separateness' was your favourite August book.

    September is always a bittersweet month, but as you have said there is a lot of fun to be had in fall and in winter. Hope David has a wonderful first day at kindergarten. Hope you can post the first day at school picture. Thanks for sharing the pictures. All of you look so happy in a summery mood :)

    1. Thanks Vishy! I really did love The Illusion of Separateness.

      I will probably post some first day of school pictures and write about the experience a bit. I'm excited to see what September (and school) will bring!

    2. Looking forward to seeing the pictures and reading your post, Lindsey. Happy Tuesday!
