~Monthly Wrap-Up~ July and August 2018

Hello everyone and welcome to my July and August Wrap-Up.

So, life totally escaped me at the end of July and by the time I had a moment to think about doing a monthly wrap up, the month was more than half over . . .so, I’m doubling up this month.

Life has been busy!  We had time for a short family vacation before my daughter started middle school!  I’m still in shock that my one and only is old enough to go to middle school . . . I also work for an EdTech company, so back to school time equals insanity on that front as well.  Luckily I was still able to slip in some reading time, although that’s been getting more difficult lately.

So, here is everything that happened in my corner of the book world for the past two months!
