Sum-Up Sundays

August

So there was me thinking that July was a good reading month with 6 books & 1785 pages when actually August was set to be even better! And that’s all because I had 11 days off work for annual leave – & it was lovely. August was full of a lot of ups & downs, with reading being the main up.
